Youth Tourney Expected to Attract 2,000 this Weekend in Weatherford

The annual Weatherford Mid America Youth Basketball tournament, coordinated by the Southwestern Oklahoma State University men’s and women’s basketball teams, begins this Friday, June 20, on the SWOSU campus.

Sixty-two boys and girls teams from across Oklahoma and Texas will play in the three-day tournament, and the action begins Friday evening at 5 p.m.

The tournament will use seven courts in three SWOSU facilities, including: the Pioneer Cellular Event Center, Rankin Williams Fieldhouse and Wellness Center. Teams will feature players in grades three through twelve.

SWOSU women’s basketball coach Kelsi Musick said the tournament is a great opportunity for the community to showcase the city and campus to prospective students and student-athletes. Nearly 2,000 basketball fans will be in Weatherford for the weekend.
