The Montgomery High School Boys Basketball Team is hosting the 22th Annual
Russ Peterich Viking Tip-Off Classic this week. This boys’ varsity tournament is
again an outstanding early season tournament in the North Bay.
Tournament days and times are Thursday and Friday (4:00, 5:30, 7:00 and 8:30)
with championship action on Saturday (11:00, 12:30, 2:00 and 3:30).
The tournament field includes two standout local programs in Analy and
Montgomery. The rest of the field is made of programs from out of the area.
Branson (Ross), Las Lomas (Walnut Creek), Washington (Fremont), Hercules and
Skyline (Oakland) will represent the East Bay and North High is traveling north
Many of the teams in the tournament qualified for post-season play last season
with many making deep runs. Branson is an outstanding team and is considered
one of the best teams in the Bay Area.
There are a number of college bound players in the field so the level of play is
expected to be outstanding.
