The Grassroots travel season tipped off with a major bang this past weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as over 200 teams put it down on the hardwood at the annual Swish 'N Dish Spring Warm-Up.  Regarded as one of the premiere travel tournaments in the country, the lineup included teams from California, Oregon, Ohio, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. 

When the ball stopped bouncing after three action filled days of hoops in the Badger state, it was teams from Wisconsin, Ohio, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois that captured the tournament championships.  We will recap the annual hoops gala over the next few days but here's a quick look at the various tournament champions from this past weekend...
