The Stormin’ Norman Reunion Classic Basketball Tournament will be held at the 76ers Fieldhouse on March 2, bringing together players and coaches from the Wilmington youth league that ran from 1980-2001.

The reunion was set up, said founder Norman Oliver, to celebrate the recent opening of the 76ers Fieldhouse and demonstrate the positive impact youth sports have on the city.

The league had 54 players in its first season but more than 2,000 at its conclusion. It involved boys and girls from Wilmington and surrounding areas and included required class attendance. Among its alums is WNBA star and 2016 Olympic gold medalist, Elena Delle Donne
