Battle of Unbeatens Caps Off Year 3 of Adam Ward Classic

SALEM, Va. (WFXR) - Seven games. Fourteen teams. And a day full of basketball. All to honor the memory of Adam Ward.

It's the third year of the event taking place at Salem High School. And the money raised Saturday goes towards a scholarship fund that preserves the legacy of the former Spartan and Virginia Tech grad.

"I think we're coming one of the premiere basketball classics in Southwest Virginia, and to do that and be able to honor Adam at the same time, that's exactly what he would have wanted," organizer Grant Smythers. "He would have been front row, painted chest, you know having a great time, probably yelling at the officials, and this just makes me really proud, and happy with what we're doing to honor him."
