BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - Year after year, Hoopsfest over at the Coast Coliseum delivers all-day action of some of South Mississippi’s finest on the basketball court. But for the next edition, we’ll have to wait another year.
According to a release sent out by the Coast Coliseum, 2021 HoopsFest has officially been canceled due to current COVID-19 restrictions. The release said that limited capacity and the possibility of teams not being able to participate last-minute made it difficult to facilitate the event.
Hoopsfest has been a staple of high school hoops on the Coast for nearly three decades.
The release said they look forward to returning to action in 2022
