In keeping with the grand scale of the McDonald's Texas Invitational Basketball Tournament, the Pasadena ISD Communications Office announces a "20 Gyms In 10 Hours" initiative for tournament pool play on Thursday.
Communications Specialist Al Carter plans to present photos from all 20 pool play games involving boys and girls teams from all five Pasadena ISD high schools.
Each of the five high schools will play four games on Thursday -- two boys games and two girls games. Those 20 games will be played from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at all five high school sites plus Southmore Intermediate.
Photos and scores from those 20 contests will be posted on the district website under "Texas Invitational Reports," accessible from the homepage.
The biggest challenge will be the first window of games at 10 a.m. Seven games will be played at five sites in just 90 minutes.
For the 1:30 p.m. window, six games will be played at five locations.
Campuses stretch from Pasadena High on the north side of the district to Dobie on the south side.
The "20 Gyms In 10 Hours" hunt will end with a single girls game at South Houston at 6:30 p.m.
