The West Region Girls' and Boys' Basketball Tournaments start up again this Thursday, and go through the weekend. Now, there has been a story circulating that the Bismarck Event Center will not be accepting cash this weekend, but we need to clear up some misinformation. While it is true that you will need cash to go to the games, this is a decision made by the Western Dakota Association (WDA), and NOT the Event Center's decision.

Now, let's get ready for all the basketball action coming to town this weekend. Both boys and girls from Western North Dakota towns will be coming together at the Bismarck Event Center for the West Region Basketball Tournaments. Check out the weekend schedule below.
