BX high school athletes share Dr. King's dream with hoops tourney
Bronx basketball players hit the court in the first annual Monroe Campus Classic in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Lehman and Walton kicked off the six-team tournament. Lehman's Mohammed Ali was the star, helping put the Lions up 32-19 at one point. Walton's Brandon Martin scored eight points to help his team regroup. But Ali was on a roll, pushing his team to a 64-37 win.
Monroe High School Head Coach Nigel Thompson helped organize the event, which he says is meant to foster good sportsmanship.
