Lubbock, Texas (KCBD) – High school basketball teams are late to the Caprock Classic Basketball Tournament due to an unusually high number of flight delays and cancellations.
KCBD spoke with Diamond Valley Eagles coach David Quinn from Melbourne, Australia. His team found he spent 15 hours flying from Australia to Los Angeles only to find a flight to Dallas, which was canceled when Lubbock arrived.
After spending six hours at LAX, they managed to charter a bus from the West Coast to Lubbock.
We talked to them when they were near Tucson. Quinn said his team is doing well and “I’m really looking forward to putting my feet up and playing basketball.”
The Caprock Classic Basketball Tournament is the largest in the country, with 116 high school teams from around the world participating.
They’ll be playing at a gym in Lubbock County from tomorrow through Saturday.
This is a charitable fundraiser for the “Am-Trykes” and the scholarship provider Lubbock Ambucs, which I mentioned in last week’s article.
KCBD will provide extensive coverage of the tournament, its travel date, and the Diamond Valley Eagles’ odyssey to Lubbock.
