Men’s Basketball getting ready for classic

He started out playing for TJC Men’s Basketball and ended up playing in the NBA.

Robert Pack grew up in New Orleans and attended Alfred Lawless High School. He later received a scholarship to Tyler Junior College and later transferring to University of Southern California.

Pack was drafted to Portland Trailblazers, and went on to play for the Denver Nuggets, Washington Wizards and then became one the greatest dunkers in the early 90’s in the NBA.

“From what I heard he was a average player and he kept getting better and better,” said Coach Marquis.

Now, several years later, he has a men’s basketball tournament named after him at TJC called the Robert Pack Classic.

This tournament consists of other basketball teams against the Apache Men’s Basketball Team.

The Fighting Men’s Basketball team will battle others teams to see if they have what it takes to become the winner. They are playing teams such as North Lake College, Ranger College, SW College, and much more. The players are excited for season and ready to damage to other teams.

The Robert Pack Classic kicks off at Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. at Wagstaff Gym.
