Lone Star State Championship Coming to Austin

Published

on

The National Gay Basketball Association returns to Central Texas as they present the inaugural Lone Star State Championship basketball tournament this weekend, in partnership with the Austin Gay Basketball League, at the Austin Sports Center in Cedar Park. The NGBA hosted its first tournament in the state — the Texas Capitol Classic in Austin — back in July 2012.

Unlike the Texas Capitol Classic, which drew teams from across the nation, the Lone State State Championship will have a regional focus. “The Texas Lone Star State Championships is the first LGBT basketball tournament that will feature players just from the state of Texas, Dallas, Austin and Houston,” says NGBA founder and president Mark Chambers. “This being the first LGBT tournament of its kind, we hope to build excitement around the state and have a goal of building LGBT basketball programs in El Paso, San Antonio, and other cities over the next year,” he added.

The tournament will feature nine teams, with Austin, the home of the first LGBT basketball league in Texas, dominating the tournament with six teams. Dallas and Houston are both represented with a single team each. Showtime is comprised of players from multiple cities.
