High school sports postponements: Sunday’s Andrew Lawson Invitational basketball tournament rescheduled

The Andrew James Lawson Invitational Tournament at TD Garden will be postponed a second time, this time because of weather, to Saturday, Feb. 5.

The basketball tournament was moved from its original scheduled date of Jan. 16 to Sunday because of rising COVID cases. It will be postponed another six days to Feb. 5 with heavy snow expected in Boston on Saturday into Sunday morning.

The tournament will be held in honor of Andrew Lawson, a former three-sport athlete and coach at Norwell with Down syndrome. Lawson died in 2018 at age 27 after a two-year battle with cancer.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation, which awards scholarships to student-athletes that promote and are involved in inclusion through sports. Donations are accepted at https://andrewjameslawsonfoundation.org/.
