Basketball tournament brings crowds to Wheeling

Hundreds of families across the region were in Wheeling on Saturday for the Winter Youth Basketball League Tournament.

Children grades kindergarten through 6th grade were among those participating in the event.

The first game kicked off at 8:00 Saturday morning. We're told over 600 basketball players and their families were in the area bringing a boost to local business.

"This is great for the Wheeling area because not only does it bring business to the YMCA and show off how great we are as an organization, but it also brings in money for restaurants, gas stores and everything around, so the economic impact is great," said manager Shelley Dwyer.

This was the third weekend for the basketball league.
