For those not making the trip out to Las Vegas this year for the Reebok, er, um "Powerade" Holiday Prep Classic, there's still plenty to see here in town, including the Rim Rattler Holiday Hoops Invitational, which just happens to be taking place today, as we write this.  Both tournaments run from Monday, December 18, 2000  through December 21, and both feature top teams from all over.  

We thought we had earlier posted the brackets, but can't find them anywhere, so we'll do it again. . .

Long Beach Jordan

This tournament is perhaps one of the best this season, featuring 20 solid teams, with some of the top players from not only SoCal but in the country.  Teams like Inglewood, Eisenhower, Compton Centennial, Mt. Zion, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Horizon, Long Beach Poly, Fontana, Mayfair, and Long Beach Jordan make up the group from SoCal, and more than a few of these have plenty of guys who will wind up playing at the high to mid D-I level.  The "national" teams include Mt. Zion, Gainesville, Springarn, St. Albans, Miami Senior, Southern Lab, Boston English, Miami Christian, Chester (PA), and Rice from New York City.  All solid teams, each with one or more high profile guys.

Here's the down and dirty schedule for those of you who don't like to look at visuals, or who can't read the small print on the bracket:  

Monday December 18, 2000

SITE

GAME NO.

TIME

OPPONENTS

Pyramid 7 9:00 a.m. LB Poly v. Boston English
Goldmine 6 9:00 a.m. Southern Lab v. Horizon
Pyramid 5 10:30 a.m. Miami Senior v. Santa Barbara
Goldmine 2 10:30 a.m. Eisenhower v. Gainesville
Pyramid 1 12:00 p.m. Inglewood v. St. Albans
Pyramid 8 1:30 p.m. Miami Christian v. Fontana
Pyramid 3 3:00 p.m. Compton Centennial v. Springarn
Pyramid 4 4:30 p.m. Mt. Zion v. Pasadena
Pyramid 10 6:00 p.m. Rice v. LB Jordan
Pyramid 9 7:30 p.m. Mayfair v. Chester

While the numbering may not seem to make sense, it does when placed in the context of the bracketing. . . e.g., the winners of 1 & 2 will play each other, the winners of 3 & 4, and so on.  Again now that you have the bracket, it should make sense. 

We'll post the loser's half of the bracket up separately.

See you there.
