The Greater New Bedford Summer Basketball Classic brought some life to Downtown New Bedford on Saturday. 

The Classic is the brain-child of Eric Britto, a basketball referee and co-founder of Truebounce, Inc. of New Bedford.  Two lined courts with Truebounce equipment were set up on Pleasant Street. 

The day-long, three on three tournament on featured a celebrity game involving Mayor Jon Mitchell and Police and Firefighters.  Mitchell says the event is perfect for New Bedford...

Jean Bennett lives in the Downtown, and gave a "thumbs up" to Saturday's event......

More than a dozen youth and adult teams took part in the tournament, with proceeds to be distributed to non profit agencies like the Boys and Girls Club and Dennison Memorial.
