This week’s guests are Mark Hurley and Terry Walsh IAABO Board 114. Mark and Terry are here to talk about the upcoming Officials Versus Cancer basketball tournament happening Saturday, February 4th at Dutchess Community College. The Hudson Valley Officials Versus Cancer Basketball tournament has become a major tradition to the basketball community in the last decade and raises money for the American Cancer Society. Mark and Terry also discuss the need for new basketball officials since the pandemic. Without officials, schools will have no other option than to cancel games.
