Even when temperatures push 100, it’s basketball season in the Triangle.
Nineteen AAU boys teams from the region converged over the weekend for the Kenny Inge Invitational Tournament at Cary Academy.
The tournament, named for and hosted by the former N.C. State star, raised scholarship funds for underprivileged kids and was put on by the Basketball Heights charitable foundation, tournament spokesman Rob Orton of the Cary Cougars said.
Inge, who started for the Wolfpack from 1997-98 to 2000-01 and now is the varsity coach at Cary Academy, also handed out trophies to the participants, Orton said.
Championship game results:
14U: Cary Cougars 56, Carolina Hawks 47
15U: Capital City Bulls 54, BA4C 52
16U: Cary Cougars 62, N.C. Skills 52
17U: Basketball Stars of America 64, Cary Cougars 52
