ROCKY POINT, NC (WWAY) — While you’re celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, you can enjoy some great basketball action during the Flight 22 MLK Jam.
The basketball event starts at 10:30 a.m. and runs until the final game beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Trask High School in Rocky Point. There are schools from across the state including teams from right here in our area.
We’ll see both of the Ashley Screaming Eagles teams, Wilmington Christian Academy and South Columbus represent our area schools.
Full Court Press co-host and Flight 22 founder Nathan Faulk says it’s a great event across the board.
“It’s a day of basketball and a day of celebration,” Faulk said. “Obviously we’re celebrating a great man that day, so why not do it with basketball? That’s how we’ve always looked at it. The same great teams are there and the same great players and it will be the same kind of event.”
Great is a perfect way to describe the basketball that will go down on Monday. Our teams, the defending state champions, Northside Jacksonville, college prospects and much more.
Now as always you can catch highlights from the MLK Jam on WWAY sports.
