The winning team (Comcast) at the MLGW basketball tournament shows off their winning trophy.

The Memphis Light Gas and Water basketball tournament at Penny Hardaway’s FastBreak Courts was held last weekend, with proceeds going to United Way.

The competition was reportedly fierce, with games going down to the wire, often decided by 2 or 3 points. These guys came to play!

MLGW’s United Way Steering Committee and volunteers staffed concessions and grilled hot dogs, smoked sausage and turkey legs with lots of other snacks and cold drinks. The Comcast team were well-deserved winners of the tournament, but host organization MLGW’s Transportation team put up a great effort to take second place.

1st place  – Comcast – Captain Keith Hightower
2nd place – MLGW Transportation – Captain Antwan Willis
