20-team hoops tourney at STHS

Michael Traum

If the weather outside is frightful – and it probably will be – local sports fans can find plenty of inside entertainment this weekend at South Tahoe High.

The South Tahoe boys basketball club is hosting a 20-team tournament, “Madness in the Mountains,” starting Friday night and running through Sunday afternoon.

“We use it to prepare for next season. And we travel so much during the summer, it’s an opportunity to host a tournament and not have to travel,” said South Tahoe coach Tom Orlich.

Tahoe will split its prospective varsity players into two squads, with one playing in a large-school bracket and the other in a small-school group. The large team opens play on Friday at 5:45 p.m. vs. Everett Alvarez (Salinas) in the Blue Gym. The small squad opens Friday at 8:45 p.m. vs. San Marin in the Gold Gym.

Smith Valley and Lovelock are the only other Northern Nevada participants. All of the other teams are from Northern California.

Teams will play six round-robin games. A complete tournament list will be available at the door. Admission is free.
