River City High School Basketball Showcase was a success

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The inaugural River City High School Basketball Showcase was certainly action-packed this weekend.

Henderson County and Central picked up big wins Friday night, while Castle, Mater Dei, Harrison, Barr-Reeve, and Bosse all won, Saturday.

We caught up with the President of Evansville Sports Corporation, Eric Marvin, who told us he was pleased with how the two-day event turned out.

"It's been phenomenal seeing all these kids in here for the first time. Giving them the opportunity to experience a professional arena-like atmosphere. The coaches and players have been absolutely thrilled," said Marvin. "We've had good crowds, we've gotten very close to where we wanted to be from that standpoint and the most important thing from our vantage point, is that everyone's had a wonderful experience here. It's a testament to Evansville, once again showing that we're capable of hosting high-level, championship events."

Marvin went on to say, that they’re already in the early planning stages, for next year.
