So, yesterday was another well-run MLK Classic from the folks over at De La Salle and this year’s venue was Haas Pavilion at Cal. The basketball was excellent and they seemed to have everything covered as usual.
More than the action on the court though, I was impressed by a Spartan football player. Defensive back Lonnie Wishom took center court before the DLS/Skyline game and read a piece on Martin Luther King and the importance of the holiday that we all celebrated yesterday. I say bravo to Wishom and the DLS staff for placing the emphasis where it deserved to be: on the holiday and on the man who did so much for American history.
