Elite Basketball Talent
On Display In Mansfield
Some of the top high school talent from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Indiana were on display at Mansfield Senior High School this weekend at the Evolving Through Love Basketball Classic.
For tournament founder Christian Lee, a 2003 Mansfield Senior graduate, the third annual basketball showcase is more than just a collection of high-level talent. The classic offers players an opportunity to help leverage their skillset for a successful future in life while also remembering Lee's mother who was lost to cancer in 2016.
Former high school basketball star Romeo Travis, who played alongside Lebron James at Akron St.-Vincent St.-Mary and later competed professionally knows what the game of basketball can do for young athletes so he attended the event as an ambassador.
Professional hooper and former Tyger Antonio Graves also supported the event in person, expressing admiration for the community that helped raise him and the sport which has become his career.
The three-day event brought out hundreds of fans for an enjoyable weekend of basketball which Lee hopes will grow in the future to provide scholarships to participating players.
