The annual New Albany Kiwanis Club Hotbed Classic will tip off Jan. 26 at 10:00 a.m. at the New Albany Gymnasium.
This year’s Classic features eight games with all five area high school teams playing. One game of local interest will be at 3:30 when the Ingomar Falcons face the Amory Panthers. Amory is coached by Union County native and former Ingomar player Rob Browning.
The 5:00 game will pit Briarcrest of Memphis against Jackson Provine and should be a marquee matchup.
The Hotbed has always featured some great games and great players in the past and this year’s edition should be just as exciting. The pairings for the Hotbed Classic are listed below.
