You hear about it all the time.

This tourney is loaded, this one is the best. Well let me make something perfectly clear The Marshall County Hoopfest is the best pre-Christmas tournament in the country bar none.

You have top ten ranked squads like Duncanville (Tx.), Oak Hill Academy, St. Benedict (NJ), Marietta Wheeler, Scott County (Ky.), Whitney Young (Ill.), Chicago Simeon, Montverde Academy and Findley Prep.

From the Volunteer state we feature on Friday in the early game against the home team Marshall County (Ky.), Obion County gets underway at 5:30. Nick Gilliam (Obion County) leads the charges for Obion.

Now at 10:00 tangling with Homewood Flossmoor (Ill.) will be defending DII state champion Briarcrest Christian. North Carolina signee Leslie McDonald (Braircrest Christian), George Mason signee Johnnie Williams (Braircrest Christian) and team and floor leader Gregg Wooten (Braircrest Christian) bring a wealth of experience into this contest. I will be joining Quincey Alexander on the Wazoo Sports webcast for this game. Check out to listen to the game live or in the archived fashion upon conclusion.

Moving on to Saturday at 1:30 Columbus Northland (Oh.) welcomes the Spartans of Memphis White Station to the Hoopfest. Joe Jackson (White Station) leads the way after a big 29 point effort on Tuesday night. The Spartans are loaded with talent including Ferrakohn Hall (White Station), Andre Hollins (White Station) and Marvin Williams (White Station).

I will be doing commentary on this as well over the Wazoo Sports network.

If you come to any event this year make this one a priority.
