Top High School Teams and ESPN Returning to the Civic

(La Porte, IN) - Blue Chip High School basketball is coming back to La Porte’s Civic Auditorium this winter.


The schedule for next season’s NIBC La Porte Invitational tournament has been announced.


Civic Director Brett Binversie says the tournament will be even bigger this year, featuring ten teams instead of eight. Also he’s hoping that more spectators will be able to attend. Seating was reduced last year due to COVID restrictions.


Of course, LaLumiere will be the local crowd favorite. Binversie says the other teams also feature many top-rated players, some of whom may soon be playing in the NBA. And ESPN will be in town to cover the action, although a broadcast schedule has not been released.


The tournament will run from Thursday, January 5 through Saturday, January 7th.
