It’s that time of year again when all of Alcorn County laces up their basketball shoes and hits the hardwood to determine who has the best team. This year, we are proud to be hosting the 2021 Alcorn County Tournament here at Alcorn Central High School.
Although COVID guidelines have changed the way we will be hosting, the event is still slated to be quite thrilling! All four schools in the county will come together at one location to fight for the ACT championship trophy. Semifinal action will begin Thursday evening. Games will be played in both Alcorn Central Middle and Alcorn Central High School gyms for semifinal matchups. The championship games will be hosted in the high school gymnasium on Friday.
In order to keep traffic to a minimum in both areas, the seeding has changed for this year’s event. Each school will play only one opponent in the semifinal action for all game levels - meaning all JV and varsity clubs will play the same team. Winners of these games will of course play each other on day two for the championship round. Tickets are limited. Admission to the event will require an attendance voucher. These vouchers have been given to teams in advance for distribution to parents, students, and fans.
Games will be featured in several formats for those that can’t attend due to restricted attendance numbers. All games in the high school gym will be streamed live on ACHS Media YouTube page. It is free to watch and easy to find. Individual teams will also be providing their own broadcasts for those fans that want a more personalized experience. We have posted a list of links below the schedule.
