Hoops Action Takes Center Court at Berkeley Basketball Invitational
Coming off an impressive win against previously unbeaten Wharton 41-39 to be crowned champions of the Northeast Holiday Tournament, the Berkeley Boys Basketball team carries momentum into their own holiday tournament January 2-3 at the 2015 Berkeley Basketball Invitational. Now in its 12th year, the Invitational will host 10 of the state’s top basketball programs in the Straz Family Field House on the Berkeley campus. The action gets underway at 3:00 p.m. on Friday and concludes at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday when the Buccaneers take on Lake Highland in a televised game on Bright House Sports Network.
With seating for approximately 1,000 fans and three regulation courts, the Straz is the ideal facility for hosting the impressive field of teams participating in this year’s invitational.
