Four junior-college basketball games during the first two days, followed by a single game on the third and final day.
In an understatement, Kirkman Activity Center on the Barton Community College campus will be busy this weekend.
Barton is playing host to the nine-game Highland Hotel-Booster Club Basketball Classic today, Saturday and Sunday.
Four games — two women’s games and two men’s games — will be played today and Saturday.
Pratt and Labette will meet in women’s action today at 1 to tip off the classic, followed by Labette and Frank Phillips meeting in men’s action at 3.
Barton’s women (5-2) take on Coffeyville at 5, and Barton’s men (6-0) will play Independence at 7 in the nightcap.
On Saturday, Coffeyville and Pratt meet in women’s action at 1 p.m., followed by the Independene-Frank Phillips men’s game at 3 p.m.
The Labette-Barton women’s game is set for 5 p.m., and the Labette-Barton men’s game starts at 7.

The Cougars, coached by Craig Fletchall, are coming off a 113-57 win over the Southwestern junior varsity on Tuesday at home.
