Hardwood Classic Basketball Tournament (formerly Bojangles' Shootout) won't be played in 2012

For the first time in 11 years, Mecklenburg County have a major high school basketball tournament over the Christmas holidays.

The Hardwood Classic, formerly the Bojangles’ Shootout, will not be played in 2012. The tournament had run for 11 straight years.

Charlotte Regional Sports Commission spokesperson Chris Clouden told the Observer that it wouldn’t be putting on the tournament in December. He did not rule out the event returning in the future.
    
The tournament once attracted sell-out crowds and top national teams and talent to Charlotte Latin and Marvin Ridge High Schools and was once called the nation’s top post-Christmas high school tournament by USA Today.

In 2009, it was moved back to 11,000-seat Bojangles’ Coliseum. The national teams and top players who had littered past fields weren’t in attendance. Atendance began to fall. Clouden, senior director of events and marketing for the Sports Commission, said the organization lost $13,000 at last year’s event.

“I don’t want to say it’s never going to come back,” he said, “but this year got the point where we got too far down the road and we don’t have a commitment finanically (from a sponsor) to make it work. Coming off last year, which was a fairly signifigant loss for us, the comfort level is just not there to assume that kind of risk now.”

It seems this writer is showing his inability to write. "will not" is missing. Poor predicate choices in the article as well.

That's what happens when the CRVA gets involved. They could care less about selling seats.
