The Chicago Elite Classic is adding a twist to its annual and growing event, which is set to be played Dec. 2-3 at the UIC Pavilion.

The Classic, now in its fifth year, is seeking input from fans in helping put together its lineup of games, with the help of the City/Suburban Hoops Report. You can now vote for the matchup you would most like to see. The two matchups that receive the most votes from fans will be played in this year’s Chicago Elite Classic.

The only rule in the voting is you are not allowed to match up any conference foes, thus a Simeon-Morgan Park matchup will not be played.

You can tweet to the Hoops Report @joehoopsreport or email the Hoops Report at hoopsreport@yahoo.com to cast your vote for the matchup you would most like to see in this year’s Chicago Elite Classic.
