A 20-team girls basketball tournament scheduled for this week, the 8th Annual Desert Hoops Shootout, has been cancelled due to air conditioning problems at the host school, Glendale Deer Valley.

The tournament was to begin on Wednesday (June 25) and run through Sunday (June 29).

Tournament director Mike Arana said the tournament originally was to be held at Glendale Mountain Ridge, but Deer Valley was going to be used as an alternate location. Arana became aware of Deer Valley's problems on Monday (June 23).

Arana said in an e-mail that he hopes the tournament can resume in 2015.
