King Cotton Holiday Classic - National High School Basketball Tournament
This national tournament has been held in Pine Bluff
since 1982 in fulfillment of a fondly held dream of a native son.
The young man and hundreds of other dedicated citizens worked
tirelessly to bring the tournament to their community through
planning, organizing, and fund-raising. Still the only national
high school basketball tournament, its reputation has steadily
grown since coming to Pine Bluff.
