The general opinion was Hermiston’s “Best of the West” AAU basketball tournament went well. Not too many hitches, not enough to be concerned about the future of the event.

As the local organization becomes a hub for high-level youth basketball in the region it stands to reason this success will be sustained in the years to come. The future of youth basketball in the Hermiston area over the next decade is an interesting first topic to tackle in this series of columns speculating about athletics over the next decade. (A concept borrowed from the City of Hermiston’s Futures Task Force, if you missed last week’s foundation-laying piece.)
