Mickey Place Memorial Basketball Tournament

The Mickey Place Memorial Basketball Tournament, presented by Rodd Hotels & Resorts, begins on Friday, October 12. Six men's basketball teams from across Canada and the United States will compete in this annual three-day event.

"U SPORTS and CCAA Basketball fans will not want to miss this weekend's Mickey Place Tournament," said Darrell Glenn, coach of the UPEI Men's Basketball team. "Some of the top players from across country will compete in our gym, and that's an opportunity that you don't get everyday."

The tournament is named after John Thomas "Mickey" Place, a long-time friend of Panther Sport, a former UPEI student union employee, and a UPEI honorary degree recipient.
