On Friday, January 15, two members of Pueblo’s varsity boys’ basketball team participated in a press conference at the University of Arizona—regarding the Martin Luther King Classic, alongside Coach Kelvin Eafon.

The boys’ basketball team participated in the 13th Annual Martin Luther King Basketball Classic that was held at the McKale Center at the University of Arizona.

“It is such an honor to be able to coach on the court that I played on years ago,” said Coach Eafon.

The Warriors took on the Rincon Rangers in the final game of the night; unfortunately, they came up short with the final score of 54-67.

Sophomore Bobby Taylor said, “I’m glad my team had the opportunity to participate in such an honorable event in honor of Dr. King.”

The Warriors are currently 12-8 and will take on the school’s rival team the Cholla Chargers tonight at 7:30 in Lever Gym. The team urges all members of the Pueblo community to attend the game tonight and to wear white to show their support.
