Conclusion
 
This was an excellent tourney and an outstanding week of basketball.  Bishop Brossart, coached by Mike Code, concluded an excellent tourney run with a championship.

This event was special for me from a personal view.  I graduated from a school many years ago with a senior class of 37 students.  This tournament truly epitomizes the ideals and standards that the founders wisely saw in their crystal ball several years ago.  The talent was good, the fan support enthusiastic, and the tournament gave many players a stage in which to be appreciated.  Congratulations to all for a job well done.

A special thanks to All “A” Classic Secretary and Media Coordinator Mike Reeves for the hospitality extended me during the many hours spent at this event.  Also a note of appreciation to David Parke, Coordinator of Arena Facilities and to Hugh Davis  and the Eastern Kentucky University stats crew and All “A” Committee.  The All “A” Classic in my opinion is first class and is one of the most enjoyable events I have ever attended or worked.
