The MLK Day Play-by-Play Classic coming to the Coliseum on Monday January 17, from PrepStars.com…..

For years now, Martin Luther King Holiday weekend has become a highly significant one for grassroots basketball. As usual, our travels this year will take us to the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina for the 9th Annual Scholastic Sports Play by Play Classic, an event that in the past has showcased future NBA superstars LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

This year, the headliner in Greensboro will be famed Oak Hill Academy. Steve Smith’s Warriors once again are loaded with high-major prospects, including Duke signee Quinn Cook (PrepStars’ No. 14 senior), explosive unsigned wing Ben McLemore (No. 41), Arizona-bound big man Sidiki Johnson (No. 54) and other promising college prospects.

Oak Hill will battle one of the strongest private schools in North Carolina, Charlotte’s United Faith Christian Academy.

United Faith is led by polished junior scorer Braxton Ogbueze and long junior center Peter Jurkin, who made an early commitment to Indiana.

In addition to those players, numerous other high-major prospects will take the court. Some of the most prominent are UNC-bound forward James McAdoo (No. 6), Tennessee signee Chris Jones (No. 70 and rising), Purdue-bound athlete Jacob Lawson (No. 85), Duke center signee Marshall Plumlee (No. 94) and improving N.C. State junior commitment Tyler Lewis.

    Why didn’t Oak Hill and Oak Ridge match up?

  • Lovinthegame said,

    Will any of these games be on the radio?

  • fan said,

    Oak Ridge and Oak Hill already have a game scheduled in Feb.

  • Andy said,

    Not aware of any of the Monday games on the radio, but we will have web coverage from the Coliseum for this site….

    I hope we can get GDS-Oak Hill and possibly GDS-High Point Christian Academy on the radio later on in February…..
