The annual three day Whataburger Basketball Tournament begins tomorrow.

The tournament will run from Wednesday Dec. 28 to Friday Dec. 30.

The tournament will host 31 top-ranked boys and girls high school basketball teams.

The tournament is made up of three divisions, each playing in a different venue: Haltom City and Fort Worth.

Whataburger will continue their tradition in awarding a scholarship to the winners in each division. Each team will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The tournament has provided a national spotlight for players to move on to professional careers as players and coaches with the NBA.
