New York-based Event Cancelled

Stu Lash, one of the members of the Five-Star family confirmed on Wednesday that the Five-Star Hoop Classic, scheduled to be played in Staten Island this weekend, is cancelled.

"Our thing is off this weekend," Lash said. "There's no way parents are going to let their kids go. Just to run it for the sake of running it … this is not the right weekend to try and squeeze something like this in."

Five-Star waited until this morning to cancel the event when it became clear that conducting a tournament this weekend just wasn't the way to go. "We met early this morning and with the out of town teams voicing their concerns, that was all we needed to hear," Lash said.
