Marianna, FL---Boys high school basketball is about set to get it's regular season going. As way to prepare for that, the Marianna Bulldogs are hosting a 6 team preseason event, the Sonny's Tip Off Classic set for Thursday and Saturday.
Marianna head coach Travis Blanton talks about the level of competition.
"Obviously when you have several division one players coming in, like Malone will have, and Holmes has the Walker kid coming in. And I think that brings something to the mindset for the kids, to meet the challenge. I think it's gonna be a great little shootout, the teams that are gonna be here are very competitive. And it gives you a great measuring stick to where you are and where you need to go."
Here's the schedule of games set for the Marianna gym.
