Paul Quinn College Makes History as the First College to Host a G League Basketball Game

Sports history is being made as NBA G League teams the Austin Spurs and the Texas Legends prepare to face off in the Thrivent HBCU Classic at Paul Quinn College, making it the first time a G League game will be played at a historically black college or university (HBCU).

The game will take place on Nov. 4th at Paul Quinn College in Dallas, TX at 4 p.m.

“The event is multi-purpose,” said Legends President Malcolm Farmer. “We’re looking forward to getting our fans a preview of the season while showcasing Paul Quinn’s top-notch facilities, campus, and staff. We get to draw attention to the talent in HBCUs, especially here locally, promote these teams on our stage, and introduce our fans to PQC and ways they can get involved in the Quinnite Nation.”
