Seventy-two teams from three states will be in Madison on Saturday for the annual Booster Club Youth Basketball Tournament.
Teams from South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa will converge on the community of Madison. Teams from Sully Buttes, Sioux City and Aberdeen will be playing in the one-day tournament on Saturday.
There will be third-, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade divisions for the boys, and there will be fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade divisions for the girls.
"Games will start at 8 a.m. and go all day with the last games starting at 9 p.m.," said Darin Namken, organizer of the tournament.
Games will be played on nine courts throughout the day with 12 championships being determined by the end of the tournament. Games will be played at the Dakota State University Fieldhouse, Madison Middle and High School gyms, Downtown Armory, Madison Elementary School gym, Community Center and St. Thomas School gym.
"The money raised is divided between DSU `Seizing South Dakota' scholarships, St. Thomas School and the Madison Booster Club," Namken said.
According to Namken, organizers are always looking for referees, concessions workers and ticket takers. If anyone is interested in helping, they should contact Namken to get signed up.
