The Leon Brogden Holiday Tournament features eight high school basketball teams, four from Wilmington and four from out of town. It’s a fun hoops event that fits right into the middle of the holiday season.
The tournament will tip off on Monday, December 27th with Hoggard High School facing Bunn at 2:30. Laney will play a team from Sewickley, Pennsylvania in game two at 4pm. Ashley takes to the court next; the Eagles play Raleigh Millbrook at 5:30. New Hanover wraps up day one, the Wildcats face South View in the round one finale at 7pm.
This year’s tournament will be a four-day affair. The championship game will be contested Thursday, December 30th at 2:30 in the afternoon. The early start time is due to a UNCW men’s basketball game that will be played that night.
Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships for basketball players who participate in the tournament.
