4 Current Tigers in Bluff City Semis


There will be full of basketballs going around Tuesday night as the Bluff City Classic continues. It will be taking place at Southwest Tennessee Community College’s Verties Sails Gymnasium. The event will include two pair of teams that will be led by current players for the Memphis Tigers.

Chris Crawford and graduate transfer David Pellom will lead a No. 2 seeded Magic team that will play the Nets at 6:30 p.m. The Nets will feature former Tiger Wesley Witherspoon, while the Magic will have former Tiger Will Coleman on their roster.

At 8:00 p.m., Michael Dixon and freshman Nick King will lead the No. 4 seeded Knicks to play against the No. 1 seeded Mavs. The Mavs will be led by former Central High and UT-Martin standout Lester Hudson and former Tiger Andre Allen.

The championship game for the event will take place on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. The local summer league features college players and professionals. This event is free and open to the public.
