First comes Thanksgiving, then Hanukkah, followed by Christmas and the New Year. And nestled in the middle of all the festivities is another long standing tradition in the Inland Northwest: the Santa Slammer youth basketball tournament in Spokane.

This year’s Santa Slammer Winter Classic tournament is set for December 17 and 18 at various venues throughout Spokane and Spokane Valley.

“It’s the best [tournament] we have in the region, without question,” said Matt Santangelo, former Gonzaga basketball standout and current Executive Director of Spokane Hoopfest. “Best facilities, best officiating, and highest level of competition because teams have come from as far away as Boise to come up, enjoy and compete in these tournaments.”

The Santa Slammer tournament features premiere youth competitive teams from all over the Northwest – from Spokane in Eastern Washington, to teams in western Washington, northern Idaho, southern Idaho, eastern Oregon and all over the state of Montana. This year’s tournament is also the exclusive qualifier in Eastern Washington for the AAU State Basketball Championship Tourney.

Teams wanting to play in the Santa Slammer Winter Classic need to have their AAU card. For more information, including signup requirements, go to www.spokaneaau.com.

    Trump says Dems are spreading phony border tales

    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is accusing Democrats of circulating "phony stories of sadness and grief," amid a global uproar over his 'zero tolerance' policy for illegal border crossings.
