SoCalHoops Tournament & Recruiting News

2000 Fullcourt Press Fall Hoops
Classic Next Weekend--(Sept. 2, 2000)


2000 Fullcourt Press Fall Hoops Classic


September 8-10, 2000


Lynwood High School (Lynwood CA)


40+ teams, 100's of top players


(NCAA Certified event)

We received an e-mail from Dinos Trigonis late last week about the 8th Annual edition of what used to be the Long Beach Fall Hoops Classic.  Formerly held in Long Beach for the last few years, and previously sponsored by Dada, this time the event has moved to a much better venue, where watching all of the players during this NCAA exposure/contact period event will be much easier than it was at the old LB City College gyms (two separate courts in two separate buildings).   For those who haven't been to Lynwood, it's an excellent venue, with covered parking, nice facilities and it's freeway close for just about everyone in SoCal, perhaps more so than Long Beach which often required a crushing drive through rush hour traffice (when is it not rush hour) on the 405.

Games will start at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, and continue through Saturday with pool play (if the event is run as it has been in prior years, there will be pool play rather than single or double elimination, and we expect that there's a three or four game guarantee), and then probably late Saturday the single elimination will start, running throughout Sunday, September 10, concluding with the Championship Game at 5:45 p.m. on Sunday.  As noted, this will not only be an NCAA "exposure" period (really the word is "evaluation" period) when coaches can come out to watch, but it's also a "contact" period, which means that there will be a ton of coaches in town arranging home visits with some of the top recruits.

The tournament will feature some of the top teams from all over California and a few from out of state as well (Arizona Slam will be there), teams like Belmont Shore, The Hood (aka Dominguez), Pump N Run, Westchester (aka, Westchester), TPI, LA Paladins, IEBP, Inland, Next Level, BWBA, LA Rockfish, 805 Basketball, and many, many others.  We've had several people ask us for the complete list of players, but of course that would require that we have access to the rosters for each team, and we suspect that complete rosters just don't exist yet, since most teams have yet to finalize who will be playing with them.  But we do have the next best thing to a complete list of player, which is a partial list of the top players who are expected to appear and participate in the tournament, which is what Dinos sent us via e-mail.  Here's the list:
