Tis the season-this phrase means many things to different people. For some, it means family gathering and good tidings; for others, it means crowded malls and long lines at the checkout. For sports fans, it means basketball. If that’s you, Pierce College has just the celebration for you.
Pierce College is hosting their 3rd Annual Raiders Thanksgiving Invitational Men’s Basketball Tournament November 24-26. This three day tournament features college teams from Shoreline, South Puget Sound, Columbia Basin, Bellevue, Lane, Whatcom, Linfield, and Pierce.
Tip off will take place at 2 p.m. on Friday at the Lakewood Community Center, 9112 Lakewood Dr. SW. Admission is $6 dollars a day with four games scheduled for Friday and Saturday, championship games on Sunday. Discounted tournament passes will be available at the door on Friday.
