We are excited to announce that NHBT will be holding the first ever all-star game, where the best athletes in the tournament will compete against one another in a friendly game of basketball! Make sure to come out Sunday morning to support your friends and teammates to watch this historic game unfold.

Ballin Out Bar Night

The Jewish Student Union, Kedma, and Hillel Greek Life will be kicking off NHBT weekend with Ballin Out Bar Night on Thursday, March 30th in Washington DC at Dirty Martini! There will be exclusive access to the bar, a bumpin’ DJ, and even a photographer! Tickets are priced at $12.36 right now, but be sure to purchase quickly before prices go up to $15 on March 20th.

Xfinity Center

Tournament games will begin Friday morning at Maryland’s Xfinity Center- home of Maryland Terrapins basketball! For the first time in NHBT history, students will have the chance to play on the same courts as some of the top college-basketball athletes in the league! 56 teams from 28 different schools across the country are signed up to play in this year’s tournament, so get ready to compete!


Thanks to our very own NHBT board members Joshua Stein and Elan Hamburger, this year we have officially launched the NHBT app! Now, keeping up with tournament will be quicker and easier than ever! With the NHBT app, you can access all the information you need to know in one place, including live scores, events and attractions, maps of the UMD campus, teams participating, sponsors, videos, and the NHBT website.

Tournament Ending Earlier

This year, we have access to more playing courts, which means multiple games will be going on at the same time. As a result, the tournament will be ending earlier! As bittersweet as this may sound, we wanted to make traveling as convenient as possible after a long weekend of basketball.

New Registration Process

This year we partnered with League Apps in order to make our registration process more efficient and user friendly! Registering for NHBT has never been so easy!

The National Hillel Basketball Tournament is just a few short weeks away, so be sure to sign up for the events mentioned above! This year is truly going to be bigger and better than ever. Between the events, activities and basketball games, this weekend is truly one you’ll want to be a part of. Hope to see you all soon!
