The CIAA Tournament just got a little more basketball heavy on Saturday, with a touch of star power.

CIAA championship Saturday now has a new basketball game to go with its women’s and men’s title games in the Spectrum Center on March 3. It’s a celebrity basketball game set to take place at 3:30 P.M.

Fans will get to enjoy a 90-minute celebrity-filled basketball game for a good cause, along with the men’s and women’s championship game.

“The CIAA is excited about partnering with Lockhart Entertainment. The organization’s founders are former students of one of our member institutions and they are members of Charlotte community, which aligns with our goal of supporting the communities we call home and where our championships are held,” Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams said in a statement. “As we continue to evolve our tournament experience to include something for everyone who attends our games and official events, we felt Lockhart Entertainment was the right partner to bring an additional layer of excitement to the arena with their Celebrity Charity Basketball Game.”
