Emotions ran high at the Idaho State Girls Basketball Tournament at the Ford Idaho Center Friday night. Four Treasure Valley teams all competed in the semi finals.

"What's the significance of the camo?" "I don't know really, it's just an Eagle, camo's an Eagle thing. It's how it is," said Chloe Degraff, Eagle High School senior.

For parents, it's a proud moment to see their kids play ball.

"She's been coming to these games since she was in y ball and dreaming about playing here at the Idaho Center so it's pretty cool to see her finally there on the court," said Jeff Banks, Boise High parent.

"These girls have practiced really hard and just to see the outcome of this is super awesome and I just love to watch them play because they're great," said Nathaniel Blancett, Eagle High School senior.

"Basketball is still in high school is still just emotion. It's great to watch the kids here. The players get emotional about playing the game and they're not playing for money or anything, they're playing for pride. That's kind of what excites me about it," said Jim Woodward, Meridian resident.

The championship will be played at the Ford Idaho Center Saturday, February 16th at eight p.m. For more information, head to
