WILMINGTON (WWAY) -- The Leon Brogden Holiday Basketball Tournament is tradition rich, but Wilmington Hoggard has never captured the event. Will this year be Hoggard's turn? Vikings head coach Brett Queen hopes so. "I'll be disappointed if our kids are not excited about getting back onto the court and playing. We're 7-1. Bunn has a 4-2 record, they're athletic, but they don't have a lot of size. We need to play well in order to be ready for our conference season that begins January 4th."

Tickets are no longer available at the high schools in New Hanover County. They can be only be purchased in advance on our website. http://www.wwaytv3.com/leon-brogden-holiday-basketball-tournament ... Tickets are also available for purchase at Trask Coliseum on the days of the tournament.

Hoggard 7-1
