Do you love some hoops?  Well here at NWPR so do we and this time of the year we add Basketball to our vigil here looking for top NW Talent.  Girls and boys both will come into view but during the Holiday Season the Les Schwab Invitational take over the media scene in the Pacific Northwest.  And boy what a tournament they have going this season.

Now with 32 teams battling it out there is only one way your going to be able to keep up on all the action.  That is to visit the Home Page of the Les Schwab Invitational Tournament.




Now in Day One of 2012 there were some great performances.  None better then that of Aaron Gordon of Archbishop Mitty of San Jose, California who beat Southridge in a fairly close game.    The kid went off for 43 points and we counted 11 or 12 Dunks and some were amazing.  Gordon may be one of the top 5 Players in the Nation at his position.

Here are some amazing pics we grabbed of Gordon and others in Day 1 out at the LSI Tourney.
