The fourth annual Hoodies House National Hoops Classic returns to Providence Day School Dec. 28-30 and will feature more than 25 Division I college recruits.
Providence Day won the 2015 event, becoming the first Charlotte team to win the national tournament. A four-team local/regional tournament is also held in addition to the eight-team national field. In the national boys field are the defending champion Chargers, who have been ranked in several top 50 national polls this season, and DeMatha (MD) which is ranked No. 14 by USA Today nationally.
MaxPreps has listed the Hoodies House as one of the nation’s best showcase high school tournaments for 2016. Formerly known as the Bojangles’ Shootout, the tournament has been in Charlotte since 2000. In 2010, USA Today named it the nation’s best post-Christmas high school tournament.
Past participants include Stephen Curry, LaMarcus Aldridge, Ben Simmons, D’Angelo Russell, Tristan Thompson and Seth Curry, among others.
The tournament will also feature a dunk contest, hosted by WPEG-FM personality Larry “No Limit” Mims.
