Mississippi Miracles Announce Thomas Winterstein ABA Basketball Classic

(Greenville, Mississippi) - The ABA Mississippi Miracles, Mississippi's only professional basketball franchise, announced today their December 5, 2006, Greenville, Mississippi Thomas Winterstein ABA Basketball Classic home opener at the Washington County Convention Center (WCCC). The miracles will play host to the Arkansas Aeros from Northwest Arkansas.

The game will honor the late Thomas Winterstein, Manager of the Greenville Office Depot, who died suddenly of a heart attack earlier this year. "Tom was a tremendous supporter of the Mississippi Miracles," states Coach James Smith. "Office Depot has been a great corporate sponsor of the team because of Tom."

The public is invited to purchase school supplies from Office Depot, bring them to the home opener at the WCCC, so that they can be collected and donated to area schools in need. "I can think of no better way to honor the memory of Thomas Winterstein," states Dr. Myers, Chairman of the Mississippi Miracles.

The game is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm. Admission is $10.00 for adults ($8.00 advance tickets) and $5.00 for children ($3.00 advance tickets). For more information contact the Mississippi Miracles at 662-822-3635, 662-247-3364, web site: or e-mail:
