 Area men’s basketball league teams began battling for bragging rights two weeks ago at LaFollette Middle School.


The LaFollette Men’s Basketball League includes eight teams and features many former high school standouts. It’s more or less a local version of Knoxville’s popular Rocky Top League, which is a summer jam session for local college players. 

Even though it lacks the star power of the Rocky Top League, the LaFollette Men’s League packs plenty of intensity into its weekly schedule.

Games are on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons and are open to the public. The season runs through June 19. A double-elimination tournament will begin June 22.
