The second annual Wally Seaver High School Invitational basketball tournament was held last weekend, at Mass Premier courts in Mansfield. The event is held in honor of Paul "Wally" Seaver, who passed away last February after a two-year battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease. For nearly three decades, Wally was a fixture on the basketball scene in Milford and Franklin, serving as the head boys basketball coach at Franklin High from 1988-1999, and president of the Milford Amateur Basketball Association from 2001-08.

All proceeds from the event went to ALS research. Twenty-eight teams from three different states competed in the event, which split into two divisions this year.

Courtesy of Paul Seaver, founder of the event and son of Wally, here is a quick recap of the tournament:
