Logan Diede, Milbank Area boys basketball coach, is organizing
the event. He says, “I started the tourney in 2019, then in 2020 we had to take a year off due to Covid. Last year, we held it again and had a great turnout. This year, we increased our men’s numbers and will be doing a four-team tournament. Exciting news, too! We’ve added a women’s game to the lineup. More exciting news! We’ve added concessions this year.”
The entry fee is $20 per player. Checks can be made payable to Bulldog Booster Club. Feeling a little rusty? The gym will be open Friday evening to help you get in some extra practice time.
