In our Top 12 Holiday Tournaments Series we dive into twelve of our favorite holiday events to attend during what would be one of our favorite times of the year upcoming!  We examine the atmosphere at each event, favorite memory, and top team/sleeper for mythical 2020 tournament.  Here is Part 2!

 

Proviso West

Atmosphere

One of the more intense atmospheres of any holiday tournament.  Every game seems like a big contest especially when you get to the final day.

 

Favorite Memory

Another one with too many to name.  I will go with the show that Jalen Brunson put on for Stevenson.  He was an incredible player and had some of his best moments at Proviso West.  Also last year’s third place epic performances by Amar Augillard and Bryce Hopkins.

 

Top Team in 2020

Hillcrest would have been my choice for the team to beat prior to the event.  They boast a deep backcourt along with standout wings/forwards Julius Rollins, Jakobi Heady, Hamahrie Bowers, and Kamryn Thomas.

 

Sleeper in 2020

Watch out for what St. Joseph’s could have done.  This traditional powerhouse has been a bit down the last couple years, but with top prospects in 2022
