COOS BAY, Ore. -- Basketball fans from all over Oregon will be on the south coast this week to watch a lot of high school hoops.

The 14th Annual Les Schwab Tires South Coast Holiday Basketball Tournament runs through Saturday.

The three-day boys and girls tourney features sixteen teams from around the state.

Class 5A, 4A and 3A teams will compete at the Marshfield High School gym.

The event is put on by the Marshfield Booster Club.

"This is a huge economic boost for the Coos Bay-North Bend area by having all these families and teams from around the state converge on the bay area, and it keeps our kids home for the holidays," said Marshfield Booster Club president Steve Schneiderman.

Tickets are available at the door - $6 for adults, $4 for students and seniors.
