BISD/YMBL Announce the South Texas
Shootout Basketball Tournament
The Young Men’s Business League (YMBL), in partnership
with the Beaumont Independent School District, announce the
72nd year of
hosting outstanding high school basketball teams to compete in the South Texas
Shootout Basketball Tournament scheduled for the West Brook and United High
School Gyms in Beaumont. These venues will play host to boy’s basketball teams
from the Beaumont area as well as across Texas and Louisiana.
Originally called the YMBL Cage Tournament, the first
tournament was held
in 1952 and has grown to become one of the premier high
school basketball showcase events in Southeast Texas. The South
Texas Shootout has played host to many of the top programs. Numerous
student athletes have competed here before going on to highly successful
college and professional careers.
The tournament has been recognized as
one of the top high school tournaments in the country. The South Texas Shootout
tournament is the third oldest continuing project of the YMBL. The YMBL
sponsors several projects throughout the year to support the youth of our
community. For location and playing times see the Tournament brackets.
