DEMOPOLIS &045; Tonight’s and tomorrow’s Holiday Basketball Classic hosted by Demopolis High School will feature some great individual talent.

The line up for the boys will be the Livingston Cougars, who feature three-point ace Neiko Hunter. Livingston will face the high flying Sunshine Tigers in the opening boys game of the evening, slated to start at 5:30 p.m. Look for the number 20, Royce Hamilton of Sunshine. He has D-I basketball talent.

The nightcap boy’s event will feature the John Essex Hornets and the host Demopolis Tigers, which will start around 8:30 p.m. The Hornets will display a scrappy bunch that battles from the tip-off until the buzzer sounds at the end of the game. Speedy guard Ken Phillips is exciting to watch as well as always determined Darnell Edwards.
