The second “CLT Public Vs. Private School” summer high school basketball league tips off Wednesday.

All games will be at Myers Park High School. Admission is $2.

The league consists of 12 teams -- six public and six private schools. The teams will play six “regular-season” games against teams from the other division and then be cross-seeded into a 12-team elimination tournament at the end of the month.

Charlotte Christian won the inaugural league championship last year.

Event organizers hope that by hosting this league, it will open the door to Charlotte-Mecklenburg public schools playing Mecklenburg County private schools in regular-season games, something that is against current CMS rules.
