Midwest Players Classic To Expand To Two Days

By Adam Roberts – 1/27/2021

Sitting court side for another Midwest Players Classic on the 16th was such a joy. It’s a simple little pleasure, but getting to be a part of a signature showcase like the MPC is a highlight of both my and the station’s years.

Now it’s looking like our 2022 coverage of the event will be a two-day extraveganza.

On Twitter today, the MPC’s official page confirmed it will be moving to a two-day format for next year, with the event scheduled for January 14th and 15th at the La Crosse Center.

It’s not known what the game format will be like or who will play what day, but so far the following schools are confirmed for 2022:

  • Aquinas Boys
  • Onalaska Boys
  • Catholic Memorial
  • Deforest
  • Madison East
  • Minneapolis North
  • Lincoln HS, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Invitations have been extended to the Caledonia, Minnehaha, Totino-Grace, Ames, and Waukee.
