The 14th Annual Simi Valley Tip-Off Classic gets started today with six big games at both Camarillo and Simi Valley High Schools. The tounament features 14 teams so two teams, North Hollywood and South Gate, will have first round byes.  The games will be played every day this week, and the tournament Championship game will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Simi Valley on Saturday.   Teams in the tournament are Santa Clara, San Fernando, Santa Paula, Notre Dame, Verdugo Hills, Camarillo, Marshall Fundamental, El Camino, Grant, Roosevelt, Simi Valley, North Hollywood and South Gate.

The schedule for today's games is

Tuesday, 12/1/98 At Camarillo High

5:30 p.m. Santa Clara v. San Fernando
7:00 p.m.. Verdugo Hills v. Camarillo
  At Simi Valley High

5:30 p.m. Grant v. El Camino Real
7:00 p.m. Roosevelt v. Simi Valley

The winners bracket games thereafter will be played at both Simi Valley and Camarillo on Wednesday, and thereafter, the losers bracket will switch exclusively to Camarillo and the winners will play at Simi.  Wednesday's games will feature the winner of Santa Clara/San Fernando taking on North Hollywood at Camarillo at 5:30 p.m., and the winner of the Santa Paula v. Notre Dame game taking on the winer of Verdugo/Camarillo at 7:00 p.m. at Camarillo.   Also on Wednesday will be South Gate taking on Roosevelt or Simi Valley at 7:00 p.m. at Simi, preceded by a game between the winner of the Marshall/Granada Hills game and the winner of the El Camino/Grant game, and we'd venture a guess that you'll be seeing Marshall v. Grant in that one.

This is always a great tournament with good action and we'd certainly recommend that you check it out.  And if you are there and see some of the games, be sure to send a report.
