The day opens On court 1, with defending District III AAAAAA Champion, Harrisburg Cougars playing a very strong Coatesville group coming off of a 23-6 season, looking for their own pile of gold    Alongside of them on court 2 will be Carlisle vs Chichester.  The Herd, AAAAAA State Semi-finalist a year ago, led by Andre Anderson will take on a tough Clyde Jones led Chichester club out of District I.   Each hour on each court is state playoff caliber team.  The 12 game event will run on two courts for approximately eight hours of non-stop action.   With 80+% of the field comprised of District and State playoff teams from a year ago, an early glimpse into the high school basketball landscape will be surely had by all that attend.  The field consists of the aforementioned teams, as well as,  Thurgood Marshall (DMV), Phoenixville, Susquehanna, Columbia, and the York High Bearcats.
