River City Classic Hits Memphis

152 girls high school basketball teams from around the country are in Memphis this weekend to go head to head with the best. The Elma Roane Fieldhouse is one of several sites hosting the 3rd Annual River City Classic. In all, some 2,000 people are here says tournament director Carl Tinsley.

"This is an opportunity for the West Coast to come out and see some teams they never see and vice versa. Memphis teams get a chance to see some California and Oregon teams. Now you get some great matchups."  

Several local teams are competing this weekend. Memphis Elite won their opening game against  Queen City Crossover Saturday night.  The tournament was started in Oregon.
