Hoopsfest returns to the Coast Coliseum
After a one-year hiatus due to COVID, one of the premier high school basketball events in the state of Mississippi returns this Saturday.
Recognized as a premier hardwood classic in the southeast, Hoopsfest often features the best talent in the region.
In years past, Hoopsfest showcased seven boys varsity games, comprised of 14 teams from across the region.
Slightly downscaled this year, eight teams, all from the Coast, were selected to play in the event.
There will be four games along with a 3-point shootout at 7:30 p.m. just before the last game.
The first game of the 27th annual Hoopsfest begins Saturday at 3 p.m. with St. Patrick taking on Ocean Springs followed by Pass Christian and Harrison Central at 4:30, Pascagoula and Gulfport at 6, ending with D’Iberville and Biloxi going head-to-head at 8.
