The Powerade State Games High School Basketball Tournament tips off this Friday at noon at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. Twenty boys teams and ten girls teams will take the court to see who can take home the Gold this year. The Greensboro Day boys look to defend their 2017 gold medal this year. We will have a new girls gold medal team, since Wesleyan (2017 gold medal winner) is not competing.
Also, being held at the Special Events Center is the Powerade State Games Youth Basketball Tournament. Over forty teams will be taking the court on Saturday and Sunday in the same room as the High School teams. Eight courts will be down in the Special Events Center all weekend to facilitate over seventy total teams.
