MEMPHIS, TN — Memphis Orthopaedic Group will support the City’s student athletes through the 2013 Memphis Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) City High School Basketball Championship, which will be the last championship played under the Memphis City Schools umbrella. The tournament will be held at the FedExForum on February 9, 2013 in Memphis, Tennessee.
A tradition since the 1950’s, the annual championship will include six games and allows the City’s best student athletes to showcase their talent for the students, parents, grandparents and other who love the city and are passionate about Memphis High School basketball and the talent it produces.
The money raised through the tournament will directly benefit student-athletes of Memphis City Schools, a cause near and dear to the physicians and staff at Memphis Orthopaedic Group.
