2016 Blue and Gold Basketball Tournament


Memories of the Blue & Gold Tournament

"I find myself going back just to enjoy good basketball. Must be in my DNA.

Like my dad, I'm as interested in the players as I am in the game. Who are

the leaders? How does a team handle a loss? Then in the coming years,

I enjoy seeing which colleges the stars choose and how they do at 

"the next level." Of course I will attend the Greenwood game, my former

classmate's grandson is a Blue Jay."
