Holiday basketball tournaments come calling for high school teams

510

The break in classes surrounding Christmas and New Year’s used to be a quiet time for schools’ athletic teams, and some will take a week or two off between games. But most basketball teams are headed for some holiday tournament. Several girls teams will stay in Wilmington for the Diamond State Classic, while the boys are headed to Maryland and New Jersey.
