Mark Stafford, a 151 Sports Marketing representative, had these comments on the addition of ESPN Radio 730 AM to the sponsorship roster.  “When you can include ESPN Radio in the name of your Event you have to make that happen.  They are the leaders in sports broadcasting.  To have this showcase promoted heavily throughout Mecklenburg and Union counties will educate a large number of local basketball fans of the top-notch talent which will be on display at Monroe High School the weekend prior to Christmas.  If you follow good basketball and are not sitting in the bleacher at 6PM on Friday the 20th with a two-day ticket in y our hand you are making a scheduling mistake.  Once these match-ups are announced the fans will know exactly what we are talking about.  The basketball will be intense and having ESPN Radio 730 AM with us all the way to tip-off makes things even better.”
