MONTROSE, N.Y. -- The Hendrick Hudson athletic department will host its seventh annual Jack McGuire Holiday Basketball Tournament in varsity boys basketball on Thursday, Dec. 11, and Friday, Dec. 12.

The schedule for Dec. 11 is:

  • 4:30 p.m. -- Lincoln High School vs. Valhalla High School.
  • 6:15 p.m. -- Roosevelt High School vs. Hen Hud High School.

Jack McGuire was a former Frank G. Lindsey Elementary School student in the Hendrick Hudson school district who passed away in 2007 after a brave fight against leukemia. McGuire’s passion was basketball. In what would be McGuire’s senior year, many of his friends are student-athletes on the varsity basketball team this year. McGuire would be the first tell them his message: “The will inside of us has no measure -- play like a champion today.”

The tournament will be highlighted on Friday when all students in grades five and older, are invited to participate in a 3-on-3 tournament.

Registration will take place at the door, and play is slated for 5 p.m. All players who participate in Friday’s 3-on-3 contest will receive one free raffle ticket that could win this player a pair of tickets to a New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets home game.

All 3-on-3 players will receive a commemorative T-shirt, and the suggested donation is $10 per student. All proceeds go to the Jack McGuire Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is awarded annually to a Hen Hud senior.  Friday will also be the second round of the high school tournament.

Hen Hud will be playing in the 7 p.m. game in a matchup to be determined, while the other game on Friday will begin at 5 p.m.

This year, the Hen Hud athletic department and the boys basketball team will be honoring McGuire with a special ceremony before the 7 p.m. game on Friday.
