Student-athletes from the top eight Milwaukee Public Schools boys and girls high school basketball teams will compete on the same court used by top players across the country as MPS presents The City Review at the UWM Panther Arena on Jan. 31. The event, now in its fifth year, comes as the district continues to increase athletic opportunities for students.
Jan. 31, 2019 at the UWM Panther Arena
Game 1 at 3 p.m. (Boys)
Obama SCTE vs. Madison High School
What to know: Madison forward Kyran Gaines propelled the Knights to a 78-68 win at Obama last season, but the Cougars are hoping the leadoff spot at City Review is a good luck charm; last year, Obama defeated South Division 56-44 to kick off the event.
Game 2 at 4:30 p.m. (Girls)
Vincent High School vs. King High School
What to know: King is looking to redeem itself after falling 78-69 in overtime to Vincent at City Review last winter. The Generals, who are led by University of Miami commit Sydnee Roby, already defeated the Vikings 76-53 this season behind 43 combined points from Roby and Linarys Burnett.
Game 3 at 6:30 p.m. (Boys)
Washington High School vs. Riverside High School
What to know: Washington is no stranger to playing high-profile games on the biggest stages. The Purgolders rolled in their City Review game last season against Vincent, and then advanced to the Division 2 State Championship game at the Kohl Center before falling 76-74 to Kaukauna. Riverside also won at City Review last year.
Game 4 at 8 p.m. (Boys)
Hamilton High School vs. King High School
What to know: Hamilton is back in the City Review late-game spot (it lost 91-83 to Riverside last year), while the King boys have returned to City Review after missing the 2018 edition. Hamilton defeated King 81-58 in the 2017-18 regular season finale.
