For basketball junkies, it will be a day to sit back, relax and enjoy.

Manny’s Pizza Shootout, in its third year and put on by West Carroll High School, is set for Saturday with a seven-game schedule.

The host Thunder will have both their boys and girls teams playing, while Clinton also will send its teams.

Clinton’s girls open the tournament at 10 a.m. against West Carroll, while the Clinton boys face Forreston (Ill.) at 1 p.m.

All seven games will be played at West Carroll Middle School in Mount Carroll, Ill. Tickets are $6 and good for all games.

“We’ve been able to bring in teams from three or four states,” said Paul Tobin, athletic director at West Carroll. “We try to keep some local teams with quality programs that will draw good crowds. Then we want to bring in some teams from around Chicago or that area.

“There’s a lot of good athletes, good teams and good matchups.”

The shootout this season will feature teams from three states — Illinois, Iowa and Indiana — with five boys and two girls games.

Clinton’s boys team is 9-2 and cracked the Class 4A rankings this week, tied with Cedar Falls at No. 9.

The River Kings face a Forreston team that is 9-5 and has some height, including 6-foot-9 Kody Michael and 6-6 Jordan Bagley. Forreston, located about 15 miles south of Freeport, is a school of about 300 kids with a solid basketball tradition.
