National Prep School Invitational should be hoops madness

Check out http://www.npsihoops.com/ for details!

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Thirty of the country’s top prep school basketball teams, up to 100 college coaches on hand to evaluate prospects, and several NBA scouts will gather for the 14th annual National Prep School Invitational.

Held at Rhode Island College from Thursday, February 2 through Sunday, February 5, the nation’s elite exposure event will once again have its top games broadcasted on COX Sports.

With an upwards of 50 players impressively already committed to colleges, the event’s main goal is to provide a springboard for many more to join that group.

The featured young talent competing ranges all the way from the traditional powers of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference to as far as the Canarias Basketball Academy of the Canary Islands.

Highlighting the field is last year’s National Prep Championship Tournament winner St. Thomas More (CT) and NEPSAC champion Maine Central Institute (ME). Previous titleholders Brewster Academy (NH), Bridgton Academy (ME), Notre Dame Prep (MA) and Tilton School (NH) return as well.

Why do top hoops players flock to preps?

I found this article online at AdmissionsQuest.com. It’s actually a link to the real article on some obscure NH weekly online news magazine. But, I wanted to post the article from AdmissionsQuest because I love the way the author so casually drops in that he was at a party in Oxford, Mississippi. Just telling us all that he is partying in the prep capitol of the South, saying “I may be old, but I’m still prep.”

Here is the article if you want to read it. Just goes to show that New England prep schools are like a magnet for great high school basketball players.
