Inaugural SE Shootout this weekend

Posted: Friday, February 14, 2003

JUNEAU - More than 100 youths from Juneau and Haines will take to basketball courts around Juneau this weekend for HoopTime Basketball's inaugural Southeast Shootout.

Edd Webb, president of HoopTime and a coach in the basketball program for local middle-schoolers, said this weekend's games are an early season introduction to competition for the players.

"It's the first, wake-up tournament of the season for our kids," he said.

Games are scheduled from 6-10 p.m. tonight at the Riverbend and Glacier Valley Schools; on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at Riverbend and 6-10 p.m. at Floyd Dryden Middle School; and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Juneau-Douglas High School.

"They get to play on the high school floor, which is a big deal to them," Webb said of the young players.

A skills contest will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday at JDHS, and championship games for the various divisions will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday at JDHS.
