Mayor, Hornets to restart Midnight Basketball league

New Orleans -- Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans Hornets President Hugh Weber plan to announce the launch of SOS NOLA Midnight Basketball on Wednesday.

The league is an initiative of the Mayor’s "Saving Our Sons" campaign, which draws support from the business, faith-based and nonprofit communities in an effort to curb violent crime and murder in the city.

"The Hornets committed to restarting a midnight basketball program in the city," reads a news release from the Mayor's Office.
