The Scouting Report
On Friday, April 12, the first-ever Pacific Northwest Tournament tips off at Chemeketa Community College. The single-elimination, three-day competition will be fueled by the competitive energy of five teams from the American Basketball Association, including the hometown favorite Salem Sabres. More than just a spectacle, the tournament serves as a means of supporting those in need—a portion of the proceeds will be used to support local youths in their battle with cancer.
Building a strong community bond is as important to Salem Sabres’ owner, Rhonda Alexander, as is forming an elite basketball squad. For the team's first season in the American Basketball Association, Rhonda recruited young players who shared her enthusiasm for the sport, but also a passion for helping others. Between practices and games against Pacific Northwest Division foes, Sabres players take time to host community events and volunteer at local schools, performing in anti-bullying skits, playing pickup games with the students, and giving kids expert tips on how to spell "horse" both on and off the court.
