The 2016 Mike Miller Classic features 17 games and a top ranked high school basketball team from the country.

Teams from both the college and high school ranks will participate in the Mike Miller Classic. The event is split up between games played and a tournament. The tournament, named after long-time Mitchell coach Gary Munson, will include four high school teams.

Two nationally recognized programs will play Friday night at the Sanford Pentagon. Washington will play St. Anthony (TX) at 5:30 that night. St. Anthony returns Charles Bassey who was named as the top freshmen player last season. Aberdeen Central will end the night with a game against one of the top ranked high school teams in the country in La Lumiere (IN).

Four college basketball teams will also take part of the two-day event. Dakota State University, Dakota Wesleyan University, Southeastern University (Florida) and York College (Nebraska) will take part in the Doug Martin Classic with the games being played at the Mitchell Corn Palace.
