The real winners of the Metro Classic will be the needy people receiving help from the Fuel Fund of Central Maryland. Past games have raised $100,000.
The Metro Classic is sponsored by Baltimore Gas & Electric, Chevron, WBAL Radio, WBAL TV, West Coast Video and The Evening Sun.
Tickets are $4 in advance at the schools. Sunday's cost at the Baltimore Arena is $8 for the four basketball championships, tapping off at 1 (St. Paul's-Boys' Latin), 3 (Edmondson-Carver), 5 (Western-Seton Keough) and 7 p.m. (Dunbar-Southern).
