Semi-Pro basketball tournament coming to Traverse City
TRAVERSE CITY -- St. Francis varsity boys basketball coach Sean Finnegan began his semi-pro basketball tournament in Bellaire three years ago.
The success was there but he knew he had to expand to a bigger area to draw more teams and fan interest.
Traverse City St. Francis turned out to be a great place for him to host what is now the 4th annual Finnegan Invitational Tournament which will run from April 20th to the 22nd.
16 teams will compete over the three days with cash prizes for the first, second and third place finishers. Proceeds from the three-day event will go towards the St. Francis youth basketball programs.
Teams will feature former pro and college players from all over the midwest including a Traverse City based team with the Schuba brothers (of Kalkaska), Robbie Harman (TCC), the Sheldon brothers (TCSF), Mike McClary (Bellaire), Trevor Commissaris & Chris Pearl (TCW).
