Former Lakelands basketball stars will descend on Emerald high School today and Saturday to attempt to earn some bragging rights for their alma maters.
The 2014 Lakeland Alumni Basketball Tournament begins today at 6 p.m. and finishes Saturday starting at 3 p.m. Greenwood, Emerald, Ninety Six and Abbeville will compete in the girls tournament, while former players from Emerald, Greenwood, Abbeville, Ninety Six, Saluda and
McCormick will square off in the boys tournament to decide who will be crowned the champion of the Lakelands.
Adding a girls tournament is a new wrinkle to the alumni tournament this year. Two years ago, the girls played, but it was only Emerald and Greenwood. Last year, Greenwood, Emerald, McCormick and Abbeville all had teams playing, but it was only men.
