The 25th annual Baltimore City Public Schools Basketball Academy, which was canceled the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, has a temporary new home with a condensed schedule this year.
The academy will feature four boys games at Dunbar High with the host Poets opening against Randallstown at 4 p.m. Friday. Edmondson and Woodlawn will wrap up Friday’s slate at 6 p.m.
On Saturday, defending Class 1A state champion and Baltimore City champion Lake Clifton will play Oxon Hill at 1 p.m., followed by City vs. Archbishop Curley at 3 p.m.
With the past academy cancellations, a number of boys and girls teams that participated in the past already have games set on their 2023 calendars. Academy organizers expect a full slate of boys and girls games next year and beyond with a return to Morgan State University.
