Northeast host Kiwanis Classic

Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Bonner Arnold Coliseum has been the scene of a plethora of collegiate basketball games in its time.

On December 19, the legendary home court of the Lady Tiger and Tiger basketball teams will transform into a high school hoop venue as the Kiwanis Club of Booneville hosts its annual high school tournament.

Seven teams from across north Mississippi will descend on the arena for a five-game set starting with a Kossuth and Pine Grove men’s contest at 1:30 p.m.

The tournament, which alternates men and women’s games, opens its women’s slate as Wheeler takes on Horn Lake at 3 p.m.

Remaining games on the schedule include both Belmont teams seeing action as the Cardinals host Wheeler in the 4:30 p.m. men’s contest and Aberdeen and Belmont square off in a women’s game at 6 p.m.

Booneville caps off the tournament when the Blue Devils battle Horn Lake at 7:30 p.m.
