Midland Empire Classic starts at Danny Miles Court

The Mildand Empire Classic basketball tournament starts today at Oregon Tech’s Danny Miles Court in Klamath Falls. Making up the field are the William Jessup, Southern Oregon and Oregon Tech men’s and women’s teams as well as Cal-Maritime’s women’s basketball program and the Westminster men’s team.

For the Oregon Tech men, the tournament supplies a good challenge, especially after William Jessup beat the Owls 64-50 earlier this year. Westminster is an NAIA Div. I team and, while OIT won’t play SOU this weekend, the two meet in Klamath Falls next Tuesday.

A single ticket purchase each day is good for that entire day’s games.
