The 2015 Jordan Brand Classic, which includes all four Syracuse Orange signees, tips off tonight. It marks the 14th Jordan Brand Classic game ever, including the third straight year Brooklyn's Barclays Center will be the host.

The Jordan Brand committee invited the top 26 players in the country to participate. Rivals, Scout and 247sports don't have Malachi Richardson ranked in the top 25, and yet he'll be playing in his second nationally televised all-star game this month.

Richardson will be suiting up for the East team in the national game, which will begin at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2. As you may remember, Mali was also invited the the McDonald's All-American game, which he played in at the United Center in Chicago on April 1.

Frank HowardMoustapha Diagne and Tyler Lydon will all play in the regional game, which begins at 5:30 p.m. ET. The regional game will not be televised.

The 2015 recruiting class is ranked No. 6 on Rivals, and No. 10 on Scout and 247sports. Jim Boeheim has stated this is the best class Syracuse has ever signed. Time will tell, coach.
