King Holiday Hoopfest

The Storm is a sponsor of tomorrow's King Holiday Hoopfest at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. The Hoopfest has become an annual Seattle tradition that celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and also offers some of the best prep basketball you'll see all season.

This year's Hoopfest features six boys games and one girls game and many of the state's best teams as well as national power Dominguez of California. Stars on display include UW-bound Bellarmine Prep guard Abdul Gaddy, Franklin guard Peyton Siva (committed to Louisville), one of the nation's best juniors in Kentwood post Josh Smith and Garfield guard Tony Wroten, a highly-touted sophomore.

The Storm Dance Troupe will be performing and Sheryl Swoopes will sign autographs at 2 p.m. It should be a lot of fun. I plan to make it out and hope to see you there.
