Negaunee – The NIT Is No More

NEGAUNEE—Negaunee Basketball, Inc. announced it will be disbanding, effective immediately, and has already dispersed all remaining funds into community organizations and scholarships.

The organization has put on the Negaunee Invitational Basketball Tournament at Lakeview Memorial Gymnasium in Negaunee, a month-long event, with a core group of less than 10 people for decades.

“We’ve had a great 50-year run, and it’s bittersweet,” tournament director John Basolo said. “The committee thanks the volunteers, players and fans who made this a successful event throughout the years.”

More than 100 teams from the local area and the Midwest participated in the tournament each year.
