This event is more that an annual fundraising event for The
Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children. It is a favorite for the community at large and, as New Jersey is historically rich in basketball talent, this tournament has featured some of New Jersey’s most prominent high school basketball programs. Among our past tournament NCAA and NBA participants include: Karl Anthony Townes, Kyrie Irving, Kyle Anderson, Michael Kidd Gilcrest and Tyus Battle.
In support of the tournament which played an important role during their high-school years, some NBA stars return to root on their alma mater or to simply catch up with their high school coaches and former teammates. Because many of NJ top programs participate in the Basketball Festival, collegiate coaches come from all over the country to scout NJ’s best talent. The Festival is purposely affordable so families all over the region can get an up close look at the stars of tomorrow or to simply enjoy a weekend of great basketball competition.
Tickets will be available for purchase the day of the event. Team schedule below.
