Raytown High School vs Raytown South High School basketball

Raytown High School and Raytown South High School boys basketball teams will battle on January 20 as a part of the second annual Time Warner Cable Sports Channel Martin Luther King, Jr. Basketball Showcase at the Sprint Center.  The match-up between the longtime rivals is set to begin at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets are $5 in advance at the schools, and $10 at the door.

A total of eight games are on tap for the full day at the Sprint Center, beginning at 9:30 a.m.  All the games will be televised, and each team will have their experience enhanced with a pre-game pep talk from a well-known ambassador, the likes of Bud Stallworth, former KU and NBA player; Frank White, former Major League Baseball player; Sam Lacey, former NBA Kansas City Kings star, and more.

According to a release from Time Warner, the showcase “provides Kansas City student athletes the opportunity to experience the rush of playing in a state-of-the-art basketball arena” and “promotes the development of high self-esteem for high school basketball players by providing them the opportunity to play in a professional arena while being mentored by ambassadors.”
