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 7th annual event in Jan. 2020 at Duluth East HS -- and it promises to be a highly-anticipated and exciting time for basketball fans from around the state.

Tickets for the 2020 event are $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors.
