Three big high school tournaments tip off in the Charlotte-area Friday.

▪ In Charlotte, the Charlotte Hoops Challenge returns for a seventh season. The event has more than 20 Division I recruits, including 6-foot-10 power forward Austin Wiley of Conrad (Fla.) Academy. Wiley, No. 17 in the class of 2017 by ESPN, is an Auburn recruit. He’ll match up with Independence High’s 6-10 center Justyn Hamilton, a Temple recruit, in one of Friday’s most anticipated games. Independence plays Conrad Friday at 5:30.

Can’t miss games: Providence Day girls vs. South Meck, Friday, 7; Providence Day boys vs. Concord Robinson, Saturday, 8:30.
