Hoops Classic a treat for area basketball fans
Sunday, June 10, 2012
Normally, when you get the Helias Crusaders and Jefferson City Jays together, they’re not going to see eye-to-eye.
But every once in awhile, they do, and then you get something special like what happened last week.
Led by their head boys basketball coaches — Jefferson City’s Blair Thompson and Helias’ Josh Buffington — the schools joined forced to put on the inaugural Capital City Summer Hoops Classic. The event brought together highschool boys teams from across the state for numerous games in Jefferson City.
