Venue change again for MLK ‘Dream’ Classic

The ever fluid situation involving the Martin Luther King ‘I Have a Dream” Classic — the event involving the Oakland Athletic League teams, not the event at Haas Pavilion hosted by De La Salle — has changed again, this time it appears for good. The event, scheduled for Monday, Jan. 17, will now be at Laney College in Oakland.

It was originally slated for Cal State East Bay, but costs for security were too high and it had to be moved. It was reported in today’s paper that it was being moved to Oakland after that was the decision made yesterday. But some hiccups arose and the event will now be held at Laney.

Here are your matchups and official start times, which have bounced around a bit as well.

Reno vs. Fremont (noon), Moreau Catholic vs. Skyline (2 p.m.), Berkeley vs. Oakland Tech (4 p.m.), Rodriguez-Fairfield vs. McClymonds (6 p.m.), Deer Valley vs. Oakland (8 p.m.).
