The Franklin Regional varsity boys basketball team outlasted Monessen in two overtimes to capture the Mike Rettger Memorial Tournament championship in 2015. This year's tournament will be Dec. 11 and 12, 2017, and will double as a holiday toy drive.

The Franklin Regional boys basketball season will be in full swing next week with the Rettger Memorial Tournament, beginning Monday at 6 p.m. at Franklin Regional High School, 3200 School Road, Murrysville.

The tournament — dedicated to the memory of former FR basketball player Mike Rettger, a member of the 1997 team — will also double as a holiday toy drive.

The Panthers will host junior-varsity and varsity teams from Monessen, Norwin and Westinghouse. The tournament will tun through Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Game times are at 6 and 7:30 p.m. both nights, and fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the game as a donation to the Rettger family's toy drive.

Toy donors will pay only $1 for admission.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
