PTI MLK Classic
The first annual PTI MLK Classic promoted by grassroots director (PTI) Michael LeBlanc (former UCONN standout and native Houstonian) was successful in its inaugural/infant state. There has not been traditional MLK basketball events in Texas while these events litter the rest of the country’s basketball landscape. The quality of the event line up was a national class event worthy of an ESPNU type line up.
