MMA’s Post Grad basketball team traveled to Floyd, VA over winter furlough to compete in the Chance Harman Classic (CHC). The CHC is an annual basketball fundraiser in honor of five-year-old Chance, who died in 2007 from a rare form of brain cancer. The classic is an annual stop for Coach Myers and his PG team. Coach has taken his teams to the CHC in each of his seven years as a head coach. Coach Myers said, “We are excited to compete in this event annually. It’s always a great environment with a lot of basketball action over two days, which features numerous future NBA and college stars.”
The Colonels had three athletes participate in the Subway Eat Fresh Slam Dunk Challenge on Friday night. They put on quite the show for fans and the judges! On Saturday, the team played in the marquee 9:00 pm game at Floyd County High School versus Huntington Prep. The Colonels battled for a come from behind win to move to 14-2 on the year.
“The biggest reason for my dedication to this particular tournament is that this a great cause and the people that run this event are not only great people but also make this event elite and special for players, coaches, fans, and the community,” Myers continued.
CHC director Dustin Hollandsworth said, “I love having Coach Myers and his teams in the classic! He has always brought quality teams and has helped behind the scenes getting other big-time teams in the tournament. It’s been an honor building a friendship with Coach Myers through a very special event that mean so much to me.”
The Colonels are back home in Memorial Gym on Thursday, January 10th at 7:00 pm vs. CBA. A full schedule for the PG team can be found here.
