Lake Superior Classic information

The Lake Superior Classic is a reboot of our former Martin Luther King, Jr. Classic, but now held at Duluth East's terrific new high school gymnasium!

In mid-January every year, we bring teams from across the state to take on programs from the northeastern corner of the state at Duluth East High School. The Breakdown will host the 8th annual event in Jan. 2021 at Duluth East HS -- and it promises to be a highly-anticipated and exciting time for basketball fans from around the state.

Tickets and game times for the 2021 event will be announced at a later date.
