Sanford Pentagon Showcase

Pentagon Showcase

Started in 2016, the Sanford Pentagon Showcase is a multi-team event held annually during Thanksgiving weekend at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D., and geared toward providing student-athletes, coaches and fans with a first-class experience.

The Pentagon is a 160,000-square-foot, five-sided facility featuring nine basketball courts, including the 1950s/1960s-inspired Heritage Court. The venue combines state-of-the-art amenities—including high-definition video boards and executive suites—with period-specific finishes that are a nod to the nostalgic days of basketball. The 3,200-seat Pentagon is home to Sanford POWER Basketball Academy, Sanford POWER Volleyball Academy, the NBA D-League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Women’s and Men’s Basketball Tournament and the South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

What is a multi-team event? It's an event that, by NCAA rules, allows Division I teams to play additional regular-season games if they are involved in an exempt tournament.
