The Metro Sports Report is proud to announce that the first Metro Sports Report.com Classic will be held on Saturday, Nov. 30 at Johnson Hall on the Kirkwood Community College campus and will feature all eight boys basketball teams from Cedar Rapids and Marion.
The new event will be part of the Hall of Pride Scrimmages, as sanctioned by the Iowa High School Athletic Association, and also will salute the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army on its 125th anniversary in the city.
The boys basketball teams from Jefferson, Kennedy, Linn-Mar, Marion, Prairie, Washington, Xavier and Cedar Valley Christian will participate in the MSR Classic with a series of four regulation 32-minute ballgames.
"We are very excited to be staging this new basketball event," said Metro Sports Report president Jim Ecker. "This will be the first time that all eight boys basketball teams from the Metro area will be participating in the same event at one location.
"We're confident that the MSR Classic will be great fun for all the players and fans as we showcase boys basketball in our area."
