2021 De Sales Invitational

The innaugural De Sales Invitational Basketball Tournament was held in February 2021. Six teams from Midwestern seminaries came together for a weekend of brotherhood and fun. The three days of camaraderie were particularly welcome because all of the seminaries were living in some state of quarantine at the time. An excellent team from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Nebraska defeated the SFDS team in the championship game.
