Editorial: Holiday Classic

ARKLATEX (KSLA) - I would like to take this time to highlight an organization that works to bring sporting events to our area.

The Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission, in conjunction with the Convention and Tourist Bureau, works to market our area as a destination for events like the Camping World Independence Bowl possible.

These events help our economy and help to enhance the quality of life here in the ArkLaTex.

This Saturday is no different, as the Sports Commission hosts the first Holiday Classic at the CenturyLink Center. The event is a collegiate basketball tournament and it starts at 2 p.m. and will feature some great regional matchups. Millsaps versus Centenary, Northwestern State versus ULM and Grambling will play Louisiana Tech.

One ticket will get you admission to all three games.

I would like to thank the Sports Commission for the work they do and encourage you to support your team by attending the Holiday Classic this Saturday.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com. Just enter SB Holiday Classic in the search bar.

Thank you.
