Next week, St. Joseph-Ogden High School will host a three-day girls' holiday basketball tournament. Sponsored by a Danville area car dealer, the 2021 Toyota of Danville Turkey Tournament will feature four teams, both varsity and junior varsity squads for an early-season holiday basketball competition.

The inaugural field of competition is formed by teams from Champaign Centennial, the hosts SJO, Tri-County and Urbana.

With four contests each day, all games will be played at the high school. The varsity games will be played in the main gym with JV teams battling it out in the high school's practice gym.

St. Joseph-Ogden, under new, first-year head coach Drew Arteaga, will face the Urbana Tigers tournament and season opener on Monday.
