The Boston Amateur Basketball Club will host their annual Winter Classic this weekend, beginning with one game on Sunday at Chelsea High School and continuing Monday with five more contests at the Reggie Lewis Center. In total six high level match-ups will feature ten of the MIAA’s top teams according to ESPN Boston.

Monday’s action will begin at 11am at the Reggie Lewis Center with head coach Kevin Barrett leading his #13 North Quincy squad with featured players Anthony Green and Efthim Butka against head coach Johnny Williams and his #22 Dorchester squad which possesses a plethora of athletic talent.
