Nation's Best Players Coming to Town in April
Oak Hill got the best of Montrose Christian last night and the teams are scheduled to play again in March. And now they could meet again with even more on the line. ESPN and the sports marketing company that helps put together the network's high school basketball and football games are creating a tournament that will be held April 3-5 at Georgetown Prep. The plan is to invite most of the nation's top private school teams for an 8-team boys' field and a 4-team girls' field. Montrose and Oak Hill have already said they will attend if invited.
While no one at ESPN or Paragon would say that the plan is to create a national championship tournament for high school basketball, that seems the long-range goal, according to what one person who was familiar with the behind-the-scene plans told me.
Regardless of where it goes from here, expect to see many of the nation's top players in North Bethesda come April.
