    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Every year I try to compile a list of some of the most high-profile high school hoops tourneys. These events feature some of the top recruits and coaches in the nation and are great stops to see future college standouts.

    Here is a preliminary list; click on the name of the event for schedule and details. If your event doesn’t have a website, pull it together and get one up.

    If I’ve missed anything, shoot me a note on Twitter with the tourney info and link.
