Knights defeating Pittsburg

Hotels are very close to the facility (within two miles) at a cost well under $100, (with suites just over $100). We will provide a free lunch on Saturday and free beverages the entire tournament. The facility has eight basketball courts, so we will be able to get all games played in a fairly short period of time. We will have our usual free-throw and three-point shooting competitions and a Saturday evening get-together at the team hotel. All teams are guaranteed a minimum of four games.

You are invited to recommend an official if you'd like to bring one along for developmental purposes. Teams from New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland will be represented. The Adventist Rolling Knights, SCI Network’s team, will participate.

The Invitational Tournament is sponsored by Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland, National Spinal Cord Injury Association, and Spinal Cord Injury Network. Registration for the tournament has begun. Tournament sponsors, teams wishing to enter, volunteers, and anyone looking for further information are encouraged to call 301-424-8335.
