The field is now set for the first ever Buckeye Prep Summer Showdown! Scheduled to run in conjunction with the NYBL Finals this weekend at the USA Sports Academy in Columbus, the Summer Showdown has attracted the best 7th grade teams in the state for one final showdown before the end of the season. The tournament format is a little unique, as each of the 4 pools are super pools, meaning all 4 teams in each pool will advance to single elimination bracket play beginning Saturday night.
The field will include all but 2 of Buckeye Prep’s top 10 ranked teams, but will also host teams from Michigan and South Carolina for a different flavor. Both of the recent Ohio AAU District champions will hook up Saturday afternoon for ultimate bragging rights. If you’re in town and want to see some of Ohio’s and the country’s best young talent, you might want to make your way over to the USA Sports Academy to catch some of the action!
