Recap: Sharette Dixon Memorial Classic

BRONX, N.Y. -- The fifth annual Sharette Dixon Memorial Classic was held Saturday night at Gauchos Gym, pitting top prospects from the state of New Jersey against their peers from the greater New York City area in both an underclassmen and upperclassmen game.

The collection of talent was a fitting tribute to an inspirational woman who was a wife, mother and educator. Proceeds from the event will support a family education and child care fund established for her three children.

New York City defended its home turf in both games, winning a hard fought battle in the underclassmen game and then running away with the upperclassmen matchup.
