Milwaukee Public Schools presents The City Review, a high school basketball competition featuring the top boys and girls teams in the district, on Friday, January 27 at BMO Harris Bradley Center located at 1001 N. 4th St.
Student athletes from eight MPS high school basketball teams will compete on the same court used by professional and collegiate players. The event, now in its third year, comes as the district continues to increase athletic opportunities for students.
“Throughout the evening, you will witness some of the top basketball talent in the city conference,” says MPS Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver. “The action will be fast-paced, and the enthusiasm from our pep bands and cheerleaders will create a thrilling atmosphere.”
Advance tickets are $6 for students and $8 for adults, and can be purchased through January 25 at participating schools or at the MPS Athletic Office – 5225 W. Vliet St., Room 163 (open weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Tickets will also be sold at the door for $10.
The City Review’s four games include:
- 3 p.m. – Hamilton High School vs. Marshall High School (boys)
- 4:30 p.m. – Milwaukee School of Languages vs. Rufus King International High School (girls)
- 6:30 p.m. – Riverside University High School vs. Washington High School (boys)
- 8 p.m. – Vincent High School vs. Rufus King International High School (boys)
“Giving our student athletes and performers the opportunity to compete at one of Milwaukee’s premier venues is part of our broader effort to redefine the MPS experience for our students,” says Dr. Driver.
