The response for the Mississippi Basketball Association has been overwhelming for organizer Fred Tate.
Tate was hoping the first year of the event would be received well and it has attracted the attention he wanted to see.
After one month, Tate has been pleased with the way MBA has been supported.
The crowds inside the Travis Outlaw Center at the Starkville Sportsplex on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights have been strong.
"We have a packed house every night," Tate said. "The kids are enjoying it and I'm trying to make it a little different from SAY. The kids can score as many points as they want. Just to have the NBA team names on the jerseys, that means so much to these kids."
