this might be a new holiday tourney... i looked on ihsaa.org at their schedule and the in-season schedule from last year and it doesn't have them playing in one.

It appears the Vincennes Holiday Tournament is new and will run from December 27 through Decenber 29. The organizers are paying several hundred dollars to participating teams, which indicates they're expecting significant attendance and revenue.

I think i'm correct in saying there will be 8 teams in this tournament. Not sure of format but popular one going around is two pools of four teams, then last day is trophy day so to speak.

Did Vincennes Lincoln used to host a holiday tourney? I seem to recall Bloomfield playing in one when I was younger.

Coach Brett took a few teams to the Lincoln tourney. Bloomfield played Bosse in it one year. Not sure who else was in it.

I have heard that the new Vincennes tourney will include Rivet, Day School, a couple teams from Kentucky and a couple Indy schools (Howe and Tindley I think). I would like to have seen WRV get in this tourney.

Howe lost a considerble degree of talent due to transfer for the upcoming season..

6'9" Malik Fisher transferred to Broad Ripple
6'3" Tyler Alexander transferred tp Northwest
6'4" Raymond Epps transferred to Warren Central
6'0" Ralph Germany transferred to Washington
5'9" Kellen Johnson transferred to Scecina

Hoiwe will still field a formidable team. Their coach is a former D1 player and professional basketball player in Europe, He teaches accountability and fundamentals and the Hornets are very athletic. I'm anxious to see how well they compete in this.tournament.

I would think they would do OK. You are probably familar with Tindley. Rivet and Day will be fairly average class A teams. Kentucky teams usually struggle against Indiana teams. On the other hand Vincennes will be good. They lost some players but return most of the team that really outplayed Evansville Bosse in a tough 3A Regional loss last year.

In 1975-76, Lincoln hosted a tournament at Adams Coliseum, it was Vincennes Lincoln vs. Turkey Run and Loogootee vs. Munster. Lincoln and Monster won the semifinals and Loogootee defeated Turkey run in consolation game and Lincoln beat Munster for title.

Definitely not it. I'm thinking late 80's, early 90's.
