Lakeshore Classic in Gary seeking suburban school :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune

Lakeshore Classic in Gary seeking suburban school :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune: "GARY -- One slot remains for a high school basketball team to play in next month's Second Annual Lakeshore Classic, and Gary Chamber of Commerce Director Chuck Hughes said he wants to find a suburban school to fill it.

'If the Lakeshore Classic is nothing else,' Hughes said, 'it is a regional event.'
Mayor Rudy Clay, state Sens. Lonnie Randolph and Earline Rogers and state Rep. Earl Harris joined Hughes at a press conference Thursday to announce this year's tournament, which will take place Nov. 27 and 28 at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary.

The event already features basketball teams from West Side, Roosevelt and Bowman Academy, T.C. Howe Community High School in Indianapolis and Foreman High School in Chicago.

College teams from Central State and Wilberforce universities in Ohio, Fisk University in Tennessee and Tuskegee University in Alabama are also expected to participate.

Hughes said the Lakeshore Classic is more than a basketball tournament, but an 'educational event for the entire region.'"
