Sherwood basketball will be home for the holidays

Before school lets out for the holidays, there's still some more hoops to be played in 2013.

Sherwood Christian is hosting the Eagles Christmas Tournament this weekend. There will be four games on Friday and six on Saturday. Byne Christian, Highland Christian, and First Presbyterian are among the other schools participating.

Sherwood used to host a holiday basketball tournament, but girls' coach Lakeshia Elder wanted to bring the tradition back.

"For our program, this does a lot," Elder said. "It gives us a lot of exposure, brings a lot of people out to look at our program and see what we have to offer for our boys' and girls' basketball program."

Games will start at 1 o'clock on Friday.
