King Cotton Holiday Classic - National High School Basketball Tournament

This national tournament has been held in Pine Bluff since 1982 in fulfillment of a fondly held dream of a native son. The young man and hundreds of other dedicated citizens worked tirelessly to bring the tournament to their community through planning, organizing, and fund-raising. Still the only national high school basketball tournament, its reputation has steadily grown since coming to Pine Bluff.

Originally submitted by: Jay Dickey, Representative (4th District).
