The tournament featured squads from the 1996, 2003, 2008, and the State Championship team from 2014.

The event raised money for Best Christmas Ever, a non-profit organization created by 2003 teammates Don Liimatainen and Jason Kunz.

All-time scoring leader Kory Deadrick enjoyed getting back on the court with his teammates for one day.

"It's great, it's great to stay connected with these guys. You know what we had on the court in the 2014 season was pretty special. And it's good to be back out here with these guys," said Deadrick.
