WWU hosting hoops tourney


COLLEGE PLACE - Walla Walla University's men's basketball team will host its 24th annual Basketball Classic this upcoming weekend, welcoming Montana Western at 2 p.m. Friday, Great Falls at 8 p.m. Saturday and Northern New Mexico at 1 p.m. Sunday.

"This is something that we have scheduled for years," said WWU athletic director Tim Windemuth. "We always look forward to it, and it's a great chance for us to get into the win column and play some really high quality competition."

Currently, WWU stands at 0-7, but with three games this weekend the squad has a trio of chances to break into the win column.

"We look at it as our opportunity to do something positive as a team," Windemuth said. "Our schedule has been tough, and by no means is this weekend going to be easier, but we feel like we are geared up for this, and it's our tournament so we really want to show our best performance."

Ticket costs were unavailable.
