Saturday, McGuinness and Kelley will play a girls game at 11 a.m., followed by the boys at 1 p.m. St. Mary will take on Cascia Hall at 3 Saturday, followed by the boys at 5.
Admission to the games is free, though fans are asked to bring items that can be donated to Catholic Charities in Oklahoma City. Items include nonperishable food, baby items, laundry supplies and children's clothing among other items.
“It's a wonderful event for us as Catholics to show what we're about and for our school to be able to host it,” Hamilton said.
There is also plenty of basketball talent as well.
All four girls teams are ranked, with three of the four ranked in the top six in either Class 5A or 4A.
On the boys side, McGuinness is ranked No. 3 in 5A and Kelley is No. 11 in 5A.
“Normally, we wouldn't get a chance to play Bishop Kelley or Cascia Hall,” Fisher said. “I know McGuinness played them every year, but it's a great opportunity for us to see teams we wouldn't otherwise get to play.”
