A couple of days of snow and ice weren't enough to derail the annual Bremer Bank Holiday Classic boys basketball tournament, which is Friday and Saturday at Willmar High School.

The tournament kicks off with a 2 p.m. duel Friday between 7-0 BOLD and 4-5 MACCRAY. BOLD is ranked No. 4 in Class A and has scored 74 or more points in six of its wins, the topper being a 112-point output last Thursday.

MACCRAY started the season 4-0 and will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak.

At 3:45 p.m. Friday, New London-Spicer and Central Minnesota Christian School square off. NLS is 5-2 but easily could be undefeated. The Wildcats' two losses have come by an average of four points, and one loss came in double overtime to a ranked Minnewaska team.

CMCS started 1-4 but got back on track with pre-Christmas wins over Dawson-Boyd and Renville County West.

At 5:30 p.m. Friday, Lac qui Parle Valley and BBE meet. LQPV, now 6-2, has won five of its last six, and BBE is 3-2 and looking to get back in the win column after a one-point loss to Upsala on Dec. 18.

Willmar and Southwest Christian cap the first-day schedule at 7:15 p.m. Friday.

Willmar lost two Central Lakes Conference games to open the season but have rebounded with three-straight wins. The Stars are hoping to improve on their 1-5 start.

On Saturday, LQPV and Southwest Christian play at 2 p.m., BBE and MACCRAY follow at 3:45 p.m., and BOLD and CMCS meet at 5:30 p.m.

Willmar and NLS renew their annual tournament rivalry at 7:15 p.m. Saturday.
