Skimpy viewing tournament news

It’s hard to get news about the most significant girls basketball happenings in the country right now, aka the viewing tournaments.

The best is the Hampton, VA Daily Press, which has not one but two player profile stories out of the Boo Williams tourney. And look at all those sidebars on the left of the page. Good job, Daily Press.

The Raleigh-Durham News Observer has jack squat on the Deep South Classic, debunking the myth that a smaller paper will more likely cover such events. I’ve been getting updates from the Cal Sparks director on twitter, who reports that there have been great and enthusiastic crowds at the event. Sparks power wing Deajanae Scurry made a valiant dunk attempt in her team’s first game yesterday, which earned praise from Hoopgurlz.

The Herald Times of Bloomington, IN might have something on the Adidas Hardwood Classic, but I can’t tell: you have to be able to log in to see the story, which may entail a subscription. Boooo!

None of the three Chicago dailies have anything on the Windy City Classic. It could have been cancelled for all we know.

If anyone out there has any game and player reports, first or second-hand, please drop them!
