    Forty of the best high school boys basketball players in the country have committed to participate in the inaugural All-American Championship, which will take place April 3 in Houston, Texas.

    “Our goal for the All-American Championship is to provide avid fans of college basketball the chance to see the next generation of All-Americans and we have realized that goal,” says Gazelle Group president Rick Giles. “These forty players have already made their marks on high school basketball and will, without doubt, make their marks on the college game. I am proud that we have been able to assemble such a talented group of young men and look forward to a great day of basketball.”
