This year the tourney will have five of the top 35 players in the country.
"Cam Reddish just committed to Duke, and that is outstanding, Naz Reid, who is at Roselle Catholic was a top player that is projected to be a lottery pick in 2019 and he is committed to LSU," said Dr. Robinson.

The Cape Vikings and Head Coach Steve Re will play two this time. They will take on Harvard Westlake from California and the Caravel Bucs.
"I like our matchups and I think I have a team that this year might be one of the best teams that I have had as a high school coach and I have two kids that have played at a high level for a very long time and they are both seniors," said Coach Re.
