WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The boys and girls basketball teams at Hoggard and Ashley were all scheduled to play at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham later this month. It was supposed to be a showcase event, but the NCAA has stepped in.

The NCAA does not allow non-scholastic athletic events to take place in college facilities. The NCAA informed Bleid Sports that the "Clash at Cameron" has been declared a non-scholastic event; therefore, this one-day high school basketball showcase won't be held at Duke University.

We've posted the original schedule of play for Saturday, December 17, at Cameron Indoor Stadium below, but the schedule may change at the new location for the event. Bleid Sports has switched the venue to the Crown Arena in Fayetteville. Keep in mind the schedule for Fayetteville will likely be much different.

Original Clash at Cameron schedule for December 17:
8 a.m. Mitchell vs. 71st boys
9:30 a.m. Mitchell vs. Hoggard girls
11 a.m. South View vs. Ashley girls
12:30 p.m. Northwood vs. Charlotte Christian boys
2 p.m. Concord vs. Hoggard boys
3:30 p.m. South View vs. Ashley boys
5 p.m. Kinston vs. Charlotte Christian girls
6:30 p.m. Raleigh Millbrook vs. Brewster Academy boys
8 p.m. Kinston vs. United Faith Christian Academy boys
9:30 p.m. Huntington Prep vs. Simeon boys

The 18th Annual Leon Brogden Holiday Basketball Tournament

If "NCAA does not allow non-scholastic athletic events to take place in college facilities", how can UNCW's Trask Col. host the Leon Brogden tournament every year? I guess that is the NCAA once again having different rules that apply to different schools. The Ncaa is the most pourly ran organization that I have ever seen. It is ashame for these kids that had a chance to play in Cameron.

Difference is the event in

Difference is the event in Cameron is not a scholastic event. Teams are paying to play. The Leon Brogden tournament is considered scholastic and the teams do not pay to play in it. They are invited to play. The high school football championships Saturday are scholastic.

NCAA is so complex. NCAA schools are allowed to give a team fruit or bagel at halftime but butter or cheese is not allowed to be given out.

Stupid NCAA rules are the norm...

With all the problems and issues in college sports having been solved, I'm happy to see the NCAA has decided to meddle in a high school basketball tournament.

But they allow high school football games at college and pro stadiums - a thrill for the kids. Why are they in the position of "allowing" anything involving high school sports?

The NCAA needs to concentrate on cleaning up their own house before they start screwing with high school kids. They are so very much like an HR department - constantly justifying their own existence by creating solutions to nonexistent problems.

Rule changed a year ago.

Rule changed a year ago. Prevents schools from having unfair recruiting advantage by having so many potential recruits on campus. It's a result of all the AAU summer events and the huge basketball event in the Triangle that used to be held at State, Carolina, and dook had to be moved to alternate sites due to this rule.

I don't understand... How

I don't understand... How can the NCAA tell colleges how to use their facilities? What about the RBC Center being home to NC State Basketball team & the Carolina Hurricanes or the tennis event that was held at UNCW's Trask Collesium during Azalea Festival.

Oh well at least they didnt embarrass themselves

whomp whomp!! It would have been a waste of time anyway with the mediocre teams both schools have..

Who would want to play in that Rat Trap?

Kids are better off not having to play in that crumbling down, stankbox full of rich, whitebread jerks.

"...full of rich, whitebread jerks."?

My, my...what a nice thing to say! There is actually a school that has intelligent basketball players and you appear so jealous of that.

I have a bet on two things. First one is, I'll bet you have never had the opportunity to watch a game in Cameron. Second, I'll bet you have missed the cut since your pee-wee days. With that said, it means ignorance is your most outstanding attribute and basketball surely isn't.
