High School coaches say the teams are excited to play their first games in the new gym.

"A lot of them were taking a lot of selfies, a lot of pictures I mean kids pull out the cameras instead of being focused on practice and that's to be understood. I mean the kids really have a great time in here and they're really excited about being in a new facility," said Coach Tillman.

Administrators says the hoop fest events will continue through the rest of this week in the new gymnasium.
