HISD Boys & Girls Basketball Tournament returns after five years

After a five-year hiatus, the HISD Boys and Girls Basketball Tournament will return Dec. 15-17, thanks to a $30,000 donation from Octopus Energy.

This is the 78th year for the boys tournament and the 35th for the girls.

“I am beyond excited to have the tournament back, and it would not be possible without the financial support from Octopus Energy,” said HISD Athletics Director Andre’ Walker. “Many athletes that have played in this prestigious tournament have gone on to play on the collegiate level, the NBA, and the WNBA. We look forward to the trend continuing for years to come.”  

This time around, 32 boys teams and 32 girls teams from HISD and surrounding districts will compete over three days. The brackets are broken up into Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum—giving teams an even playing field.
