It's exciting. It will leave you dancing in the aisle. And it's free.
No, it's not a dance contest, but there is plenty of sneaker-scootin' and moving to the music.
The event is West Texas Center's eighth annual Hoops Dreams and Goals, and it is set for all day Friday at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.
Ten teams from across West Texas will participate in the high-energy, bracket-driven basketball tournament, punctuated by sometimes intense, sometimes inspirational, music. â€śEye of the Tigerâ€ť anyone?

As expected, Big Spring City Manager Gary Fuqua is slated to announce new restrictions to ongoing municipal water restrictions Tuesday, part of the city's efforts to comply with cuts in water deliveries from the Colorado River Municipal Water District.
Fuqua warned the council approximately two weeks ago the new restrictions â€” which will take the city from a schedule that allows for outside water use twice a week to a single two-hour period â€” were on their way.
Being prepared and empowered is the focus of the Healthy Woman March presentation, â€śYou are Not Alone.â€ť

Big Spring Softball Coach John Sparks knew Brownwood would be a tough District 5-3A opponent, and he was proven right as Big Spring was on the short end of an 8-3 decision at the Big Spring ISD Softball Complex Friday.
Things got out of hand quickly for BSHS â€” Brownwood came out swinging, putting up five runs in the top of the first.
Errors â€” seven to be exact â€” derailed the Lady Steers.
Sparks said those miscues were the major reason the Lady Steers dropped to a 1-2 district record.
