EBO/EA "Sweet 16" Basketball
Invitational Schedule--(Sept. 15, 2000)

What:  EBO/EA "Sweet 16" Invitational
When: Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 19 & 20
Where: Fresno--Sunnyside HS, Washington Union HS
Who: Top travel teams and prospects from California

Well, we finally managed to wring the schedule for this event out of Dennis Magro, and that was no small feat.  The EBO/EA "Sweet 16" is an invitational showcase event, not a tournament strictly speaking, but a true showcase where each team plays three games, and teams get to select their opponents.   We're pretty sure that this is at least one reason why the schedule has taken so long to get to us, because everyone has their own special accomodations, and when we spoke with Dennis Thursday afternoon, he was a bit frazzled.  We received a fax at 5:25 a.m. from Dennis, so it looks like he's been up all night trying to get this thing out.

The tournament will feature some of the top teams in the West, including:

The Hood (Tyson Chandler, Keion Kindred, Darius Sanders, Samir Hernandez, Bobby Jones)
LA Rockfish (Josh Dunaj, Khalief Ford, Nick Curtis, Alex Graham, Ryan Moore)
LA Paladins (Doug Thomas, Anthony Davis, Terrell Stovall, Andre Patterson)
EBO/EA Sports (Antonio Lawrence, David Gale, Phillip Johnson, Jovance Coleman, Maurice Shaw, Dustin Villepigue)
Next Level (Brandon Worthy, Joe Calderon, Hassan Houston)
Clovis West (Chris Hernandez)
805 (Dommanic Ingerson, Armando Surratt, Adam Allegro, Johnn Grey, Joel Smith, Ryan Zimerman, Trey
Oakland Soldiers I (Chuck Hayes, Joe See, Charles Brown, Will Venable, Dustin Brown, Demarshay Johnson,
David Paris)
Oakland Soldiers II (Leon Powe, Deshawn Freeman, Rekalin Sims, John Sharper, Marquis Kately, Chase
SSA I (Mike Chambers, Jason Parker, Johny Sotelo, Phil Goodman, Cletus Peters)
2 The Hoop (Maurice Tyree, Phil Rasmussen, Josh Davis, Grant Gidaro, Adam Harper, Joey Lemus)
Modesto Slam N Jam (Bobby Cole)
NorCal Magic (Tremaine Davis, Keith Wilright, Will Bonner, Geormel Benson)

There will also be a whole host of local and some not-so local high school teams (well, in addition to the Hood, aka Compton Dominguez), including McClain, Edison, Canyon (Canyon Country), Hoover, as well as other club teams whose rosters are likely very similar to what we saw in the spring at the EBO/EA "Mats Madness", like Stockton Boys Club, Visalia, and others.  The Renegades from Sacramento will also be bringing two teams as well.
