|Don Redden Classic tops prep hoops bill|
Coming off a championship in last week's West Monroe Tournament, the Ouachita Lions have their sights set on capturing a fourth consecutive Don Redden Memorial Classic Tournament championship.
This year marks the 21st annual Don Redden Memorial Classic which tipped off on Wednesday, Jan. 4, at Ouachita Parish High School.
Eleven basketball teams from around the state will hit the hardwood Jan. 4-7 to vie for the Redden title.
The field includes a defending state champion (Carroll in 3A) and two state semifinalists (Richwood in 3A and Grambling in 1A) in a competitive tournament that serves as a good measuring stick with district play just around the corner.
"The quality of the teams involved makes this such a great tournament,'' Ouachita coach Casey Jones said. "Each year you have several teams who participated in the Redden make deep runs or win it all in the state tournament. You could easily go 0-2 in the Redden and still be a very good team. The competition is just that tough. The tremendous crowds make the games very exciting to the student-athletes and fans.''
The 16-game tournament tips off at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday and concludes Saturday with the 8 p.m. championship game. Other teams in the tournament field are Homer, LaGrange, Rayville, Sicily Island, West Monroe, Woodlawn-Shreveport and Zachary.
The tournament, named in honor of the late Ouachita and LSU basketball star, features a mix of local flavor, talented players and quality teams.
