For the 6th consecutive year, the Buckeye Prep Invitational Tournament promises to be very competitive. Right now, 75 teams from across the state and Michigan will be descending on Columbus April 2nd, 3rd and 4th for the annual event. Some of the top 5th thru 11th grade teams slated to attend include: All-Ohio (Red & Purple), Queen City Prophets, Michigan Titans, Team Toledo, Cincinnati Lakers, Buckeye Prep, Dayton Salvation Army, Saginaw Panthers and the Friars Blue Storm.
This year's event will be held at multiple sites including Ohio Dominican University (ODU), Westerville South High School (West 1 & 2), Whitehall Yearling High School (WHHS 1-3). A maximum of 80 teams will participate this year. In terms of the format, there is a 3-game guarantee with the top 2 teams in each pool advancing to single elimination bracket play on Sunday. The exposure opportunities will be great, as there will be several scouting services in the house evaluating the kids.
