Boys and girls in grades 4-8 from Imperial and the area will fill Imperial’s three gymnasiums Saturday for a youth basketball tournament.
Imperial will have multiple teams in the tournament. Other communities tentatively scheduled to have teams here include Stratton, Benkelman, Perkins County, Hayes Center, McCook, Hitchcock County and Holyoke, Colo.
According to the schedule available Tuesday, some games will start at 8 a.m. with the last contests of the day wrapping up about 5 p.m.
The Longhorn, Shorthorn and Wellington gyms will be in use for the tourney.
Help still needed
Organizer Brad Moline is still looking for help at Saturday’s tourney from referees, time clock operators and scorekeepers.
