tournament to bring the top 64 grassroots basketball teams from across
the nation together. The season begins with four regional tournaments,
and the first of these is this coming weekend, May 3-4, at the Galen
Center on the campus of USC. Top teams in this region will qualify for
the champions tournament later this summer in Chicago Throughout, all
participants will be exposed to the organization’s commitment to
changing the system with mandated skill development clinics, minimum
academic requirements and total transparency.
