Native American B Ball Tourney

Post by alabamagrizzly » Sun Jun 09, 2019 2:25 pm

Good luck to these guys representing Natives, their tribes, and Montana at this prestigious tourney. A couple from Wyo also will be on the team but it’s predominantly made up of Montanas. Cool to see the different tribes coming together and an opportunity for these kids to showcase their talents and hopefully land some D-1 offers. Sounds like this is the whos who of high school indigenous basketball teams in the country and for these guys to get invited is a very big deal.

I've watched some of the games in the past - good basketball They play the finals at the Phoenix Suns' area (Talking Stick Resort Arena - naming rights sponsored by a tribe-owned casino/resort).
