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 an email at [email protected] with the tourney info and link. Also, if you’re interested in covering any of these events for ZAGSBLOG.com, shoot me an email.
