ATown Throwdown Starts Thursday

Unless Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski removes the rims up on the basketball courts at Cedar Beach Park like he recently did at Andre Reed Park, an exciting weekend of basketball will coincide with this year's Sportsfest. It's the "A-town Throwdown," starting this Thursday (July 13) with tip-offs 5 pm.. The tourney includes 48 boys varsity, 24 boys JV and 30 girls varsity teams. In addition to the local teams, there are entries from Philly, New York and even France.

The tournament itself has tweeted, "A lot of talk this summer about @Becahi_Hawks and @ACCHSboysbball . Who will make it to Sunday? #NoWhereToHide."

I think that qualifies as talking smack, which I love.

Allentown Central Catholic, currently tied with Reading at the top of Summer League at 7-1, is in a pool that includes heavyweights Northeast HS (Philly) and Bensalem. The Vikings will face Palmerton on Thursday night. Under coach Coach Dennis Csensits, they have developed into a tough team that combines a very stingy defense with a balanced offensive attack.

They're not hiding.

Nor is anyone else. This year there is far more parity than ever.

You can see the varsity boys tournament pools here. Click on your team and you'll see their schedule through Saturday.

Note to the tournament directors - just make sure the rims are there or there will be no place for you to hide.

Just the name Atown throwdown sounds ghetto

I'll let this comment stand bc it shows how divided we still are. And just as KKK members wear hoods, this bigot hoods himself with anonymity

Saying you have a black grandson doesn't give you automatic street cred. You are no judge of who is racist, with the pals you have.

I said nothing about my grandson or his ethnicity. I left that for bigots like you.
