The Junior Knicks League, joined by a New York basketball legend, recently held its championship game at August Martin High School.

Former Knicks star John Starks came out to watch teams from Jamaica and South Ozone Park battle it out for the championship on Friday, March 30.

The Junior Knicks teams from P.S. 40 in Jamaica and M.S. 226 in South Ozone Park took to the hardwood, with P.S. 40 taking home the title.

All the participating schools — P.S.48, P.S.55, P.S. 62, P.S.155, P.S 160 and P.S.223 — attended the league’s championship game.

“I am proud to have funded the Junior Knicks program. This program introduced young men and women to the sport of basketball, promoted mentorship, team building, healthy habits, sportsmanship and parental involvement,” said Councilmember Ruben Wills. “It is important to look for every measure to expand the educational support communities beyond the walls of the school.”
