    The SNY Invitational tips off tonight and tomorrow at NYU’s Coles Center. The four teams battling it out are Thomas Jefferson, Boys & Girls, Mount Vernon and St. Raymond’s. Check out this video feature of Thomas Jefferson, which has faced tragedy in the form of the shootings of two of its coaches, the late Tyrone Davis and Kenny Jones, who is back home after a stay in the hospital.

    And be sure to watch the games tonight at 6 and 8 on SNY as I will be making an appearance to talk recruiting and high school hoops.
