One Geeker Classic just wasn't enough.

More than 300 people attended the inaugural event nearly two months ago, and have demanded another day-long, basketball festival.

So, Eric Vaughn is obliging hoops fans with a Geeker Classic Remix.

The middle school game tips off at 3 p.m. on Sunday, and and launches six hours of action inside Norvell T. Lee Gymnasium on the Goldsboro High campus. In addition to the games, which feature some of Wayne County's best talent on the hardwood, a 3-point shooting contest and dunk battle is also scheduled.

Door prizes will be awarded.

Tickets are available at the door.

Prices are as follows:

* Adults 21 and over: $7;

* Middle- and high school-aged children, and college students: $5;

* Elementary students 6 and over: $3.

* Children under 5 admitted free.

The first 100 school-age children will receive free school supplies. Proceeds from the Remix go toward mentoring young men and women in Wayne County.
