With Crime in Providence High, “Hoops Over Violence” Spreads Positive Message

Corey Wright Jr.’s annual “Hoops Over Violence” basketball showcase always features premiere basketball talent from all age groups.

With the homicide count in Providence now in the teens, the event’s message hits even closer to home.

“There’s a lot of kids, there’s a lot of adults just running wild,” Wright said.

“We’re just trying to give the youth one day where they can come and they can have fun.”
