A brand new event will bring a little flare to local high school boys basketball games. Brett Hespell is the boys basketball coach at Lockport Township High School and this weekend his team will play Plainfield South at Lewis University. The inaugural Will County Winter Classic will be played on Saturday, February 1st at Lewis University. Hespell hopes this becomes a yearly event.
