I’m seeing the videos and hearing the reports from preseason scrimmages and, in some cases, the first few games for the high school basketball season. I’ve gotta say I’m impressed!

The elite teams are really stepping up and making early statements against the competition. In some cases though, they’re getting reality checks.

Everyone better bring their A game. We’re watching you.
