Washington institution forges on.


April 23, 2013 - It’s a DMV (District-Maryland- Virginia) standard, one that has thrilled both participants and patrons 39 times previously; the Capital Classic is here.

Set for Sunday, this two game affair – the first is a District vs Suburban contest, while the finale pits the Capital All-Stars against their U.S. counterparts – starts at 2p. The site is once again TC Williams HS (Alexandria, VA).

General admission tickets are $25, while high students with I.D. can gain access for $10. Those interested in reserved seats (first five rows) can pay $35 or $100 for courtside positions, while group discounts are also available - $5.00 off 10 tickets or more, $10.00 is deducted if 20 tickets are bought, and subtract $15.00 if 30 tickets are purchased, with the reduced amounts applicable to each ticket.

So who are the participants?
