New Look for Amos Morris Tournament

Basketball3The annual Amos Morris Basketball Tournament is returning to Russell in December, but with a slightly different name and look.

In the past, the tournament has been shared between Russell and Lincoln. But Lincoln has decided to drop out this season. So Russell will take over the tournament each year moving forward.

The name of the tournament also is changing. Since it's inception, the tournament has been named the Amos Morris - George Stephens Basketball Classic. Now, the tournament will be known as the Amos Morris Classic.

This year's Amos Morris Classic will be held December 3-8 and include six schools in the field - Russell, Central Plains, Ellsworth, Phillipsburg, Plainville and Smith Center.

The girls will play on December 3 and 6 and the boys on December 4 and 7. The consolation and championship games will be on December 8.

All games will be played at Russell High School's Amos Morris Gym except for the two fifth place games on December 8. Those will be held at the RMS Gym.
