It’s Tournament of Champions time and the bracket has been released. See the full bracket below.
All games for the most-attended high school basketball tournament will be play at JQH Arena from Jan. 15-17.
Here are some highlights from the field:
– 2013 Champion Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.) returns for a third-straight year with Syracuse commit Franklin Howard. Georgetown commit and former T of C MVP Marcus Derrickson has transferred high schools.
– Oak Hill Academy (Va.) is in the tournament for the first time and has a reputation for being one of the top teams in the country.
– Wesleyan Christian (NC) is back in the tournament and this time we will get to see Harry Giles, a 6-foot-9 forward, who is ranked as the No. 3 junior in the country by ESPN.
– The local teams are Parkview and Waynesville, both of which feature Division I players.
– Maybe we buried the lead here, but there is a dunk contest at 6 pm. on Jan. 16. Yes, a dunk contest. To get ready, here’s a highlight video of Giles.
