The Moffat County High School boys and girls varsity basketball teams begin tournament play today in the Steamboat Springs Shootout.

The tournament, which concludes Saturday, takes place at Steamboat Springs High School, 45 Maple St., and each team is guaranteed three games in the 8-team bracket.

A three-day pass costs $20 for adults and $14 for students. Daily passes are $8 for adults and $6 for students.

The MCHS boys, who have not played a game yet this season, are matched up today against Windsor High School. The contest is slated for 3 p.m., and opens tournament play.

Head coach Eric Hamilton, who’s in his first season with MCHS, said starting the new season with a win would be a great accomplishment for his new team.

“If we could start out with a big win against Windsor, it would be huge for us, but more importantly, we just need to play well,” he said. “We need to get started out on the right track and play solid and give ourselves an opportunity to win.”

Hamilton said having an extra week of preparation was beneficial to his team.

“The guys are really fired up and have been working super hard since we started,” he said. “Their work ethic is exceptional, so we feel like we are prepared.

“We wish we could have had a game prior, but it gave us an extra week of practice and a weekend off.”

The MCHS girls, 2-1, will play D’Evelyn High School at 6:30 p.m.

After opening the season in the Uintah Classic Tournament, head coach Matt Ray said he expects even tougher teams in Steamboat.

“I think we are where we need to be,” he said. “We practiced well and had a great tournament (in Uintah).

“Every team is going to be tough and us and Steamboat are the smallest schools playing.”
