An annual summer event, the Morris Boys Shootout, will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 25 and 26. The 32-team boys basketball event will begin with group play on Tuesday as teams will be divided into eight groups of four teams each. Teams will play against the other teams in their group and the results will determine seeding for the knockout round on Wednesday.

Groups A to D play from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., while groups E to H play from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Games will be played on the three sports hall courts and in the main gymnasium at Morris.

Pool A includes Bloomington Central Catholic, Burlington Central, Neuqua Valley and Oswego; Pool B includes Bolingbrook, Marmion Academy, Minooka and Sandwich; Pool C includes Lanark Eastland, Lake Forest, Morton and Tolono Unity; and Pool D includes Galesburg, Kankakee, Loyola Academy and Normal U-High.

Pool E includes Collinsville, Lake Park, Ottawa and Waubonsie Valley; Pool F includes Belvidere, Deerfield, Plainfield North and Streator; Pool G includes DeKalb, Joliet Central, Oak Forest and Pontiac; and Pool H includes Benet Academy, Dundee-Crown, Morris and Plainfield South.

“For the live events, we're trying to stick to our shootout,” said Morris coach and tournament organizer Joe Blumberg. “We've lost some top teams, and some that are still participating are missing key players. We're still going to try to provide two days of top-notch basketball.”
