Posted On: 01/12/18 12:00 PM

The Salem Invitational Tournament is coming up next week which is annually one of the better mid-winter tournaments in Southern Illinois.

This is always a chance to see some quality small college talent and players emerge halfway through the season.  The headliner from a prospect standpoint is 2019 small forward Landon Wolfe.  The junior broke out this summer and emerged as a top 40 player in his class.  Mt. Vernon has an intriguing young wing in Amir Spann from the sophomore class.  Edwardsville has a dynamic senior duo of Caleb Strohmeier and Jack Marinko which provide and inside/outside punch.  Teutopolis and Centralia are two legendary programs in southern Illinois that play great team basketball.  Host Salem has a trio of potential small college players in Damond Crosby, Dawson Linder, and Cord Brown.  PrepHoopsIllinois will have coverage next week from the SIT!
