SWOSU Hosting Youth Basketball Tournament This Weekend
June 20, 2012
A Mid America Youth Basketball (MAYB) Tournament will be held this weekend at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
The SWOSU men’s and women’s basketball teams are hosting the tourney on June 22-24.
The third annual event will bring 57 boys and girls teams, ranging from 5th graders to high school seniors, to play on eight different courts in four different arenas around the city. The SWOSU Wellness Center, Rankin Williams Fieldhouse, the Weatherford Middle School gym, and the Weatherford YMCA will all hold games.
SWOSU women’s basketball coach Kelsi Musick said not only does the tournament help the Bulldog basketball teams as a fundraiser, it benefits the local community with over 1,800 players, coaches and spectators visiting the area for an exciting weekend of action.
Coach Musick also sees the impact the tournament has on future Bulldogs.
“It brings kids to our campus who may consider SWOSU later,” Musick said. “In the future, the new Events Center, along with our Wellness Center, will make this tournament even better and bring more teams to Weatherford.”
The tourney is made possible with the assistance of the City of Weatherford’s Hotel/Motel Tax Committee.
