A new basketball tournament featuring four traditionally all-black colleges will play in Milwaukee during Thanksgiving weekend.

The "Fresh Coast Basketball Classic," using a term dubbed by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, will be held in Milwaukee Nov. 23-24. It will feature a matchup of Dillard University, of Louisiana; Langston University, of Oklahoma; Lane College, of Tennessee; and Central State, of Ohio.

Harley-Davidson Inc. and Manpower Inc. are the primary sponsors of the event. The event will be held at the Midwest Airlines Center and the U.S. Cellular Arena in downtown Milwaukee. It will include other entertainment and events, such as a slam dunk contest, a college recruitment fair and a career fair for young people.
