MLK Classic

NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City Sports’ live streaming coverage of high school sports continues Monday with the final two games of the InspireNOLA Schools 2022 MLK Classic, a day-long boys basketball event at McDonogh 35 High School.

CCS’ live coverage will begin just prior to the scheduled 6:30 p.m. tipoff between Newman and Zachary, followed by the 8 p.m. nightcap between Carver and Edna Karr.

The MLK Classic features 14 of the top teams in south Louisiana in a one-day event, beginning at 11 a.m. when host McDonogh 35 meets McKinley. The other games include Warren Easton taking on Sophie B. Wright, Lafayette Christian meeting Booker T. Washington, McMain facing Scotlandville and Madison Prep battling St. Augustine.

The Newman-Zachary game matches a pair of teams currently ranked No. 1 in their brackets in the latest unofficial LHSAA power rankings.

Newman (14-4) was the runner-up in Division III a year ago and has a Saturday game with Southern Lab. Zachary (17-3), which takes a 13-game winning streak into a Friday game against McKinley, won the 2021 Class 5A championship.

The Karr-Carver game pits the teams ranked Nos. 1 and 3 in the latest Class 4A power rankings.

Karr (20-3), which meets West Monroe on Sunday, captured the title in the Country Day Classic just before Christmas, defeating Catholic High in a game also broadcast on Crescent City Sports.

For Carver (15-5), it’s the start of a huge week on the schedule as the Rams will face the No. 2 team in the Class 4A rankings, McMain, on Thursday.

Tickets for the MLK Classic are available here.

The Crescent City Sports team is in its 11th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 350 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2021-22. CCS will also produce additional events that will both be televised by Cox Communications and streamed on the site.
