PRESS RELEASE – GTA  2013 GDOE-IIAAG Middle School Boys Basketball All Island Tournament ended its six

th year of post playoff  games between participating public and private schools on March 30 at Tamuning Gym.

“It has been an exciting week for the teams and fans watching back to back games under one roof. The atmosphere in the gym was electrifying with each intense game played,” stated tournament coordinator Elsa Ulloa.
