As the B.J. Gonzales Memorial Basketball Tournament turns 15, the growth of the event still amazes its founder.
“It’s mind-boggling,” said Benedict Gonzales, who launched the event as a way to honor his late son, killed in a vehicular accident years ago.
The tournament tips off at 6 p.m. Friday and continues through the weekend with full days of basketball on Saturday and Sunday at Gillie Lopez Gym on the West Las Vegas campus.
Admission to the tournament is $3, with proceeds going toward a benefit scholarship fund.
