What a wonderful concept.
Take two of the richest basketball cities and bring them together to play a series of games to see who ranks supreme.
Memphis vs. Atlanta 2009 Roundball Christmas Classic has accomplished this feat and for the second year the teams have battled for city superiority.
Ridgeway got the upperhand as things got underway yesterday besting Fayette County but the count was evened as Sheffield fell in their opening contest.
The schedule for monday reads as follows:
Chris Crawford (Shefffield) leads Sheffield against Chamblee. Hamilton will look to senior Carlos Denton (Hamilton) to get the win over Fayette County. Tucker takes on up and coming Memphis powerhouse Southwind led by senior guards Nick Mason (Southwind) and Walter Davis (Southwind). Ridgeway and Memphis signee Tarik Black (Ridgeway) battle Westlake.
On Tuesday the action gets even hotter as Sheffield opens with the host team Mt. Zion followed by Hamilton banging heads with Stockbridge. Southwind tangles with Georgia power Chamblee and Ridgeway closes things out with a date against Creekside.
Incredible action, we will keep you posted as the results come our way.
