“Now that the Merv Lopes has come and gone, we are excited to give the younger division players an opportunity to play in a tournament format,” said Coach Clarence Sales of Team Central Basketball. “The summer league just ended so we decided to put the invitational tournament together for the younger division to play in before they head back to school.”
