“During the two day basketball extravaganza, hundreds of games will be played at gyms throughout Casper. The tournament is bracketed in a modified consolation format; therefore, many teams play more than their guaranteed three games.  All games are officiated by experienced referees.”

“The team fee of $180 includes a 3-game guarantee, a free throw competition on Friday night, March 20, and admission to a pool party on Saturday night at the Casper Family Aquatic Center,” the release adds.

For those traveling from out of town, the Ramkota is offering special room rates in conjunction with the tournament.
