Marshall Henderson (Dallas Mustangs)
Anthony Marshall (LV Prospects)

Boo Williams, Pump n Run Elite, etc., provide some more Zag recruits. The site is one of the best--nice stats, quick scores, full rosters, boxscores--and the tourney is always well run. There will also be recruiting update reports coming out.

I'm looking forward to some more great analysis from Azzagfan again. I really liked his commentary. My introduction to the then relatively unkown Peyton Siva and Kemba Walker were from his glowing reports. He really liked them and I can see why. Siva to Louisville and Walker to UConn.

I really wish I could attend again as I had an absolute blast last year, but I've moved up to the currently water-logged Twin Cities area. I'd recommend the tourney to anyone in the Tucson area and even Phoenix, it's well worth the drive down to Tucson to see a weekend of some of the best high school players in the country. It's also a great place to see AAU basketball in action and to see the good things and the humorous/not so good things. In fact, I believe my ears are still ringing from 2010 national #1 ranked player Jeremy Tyler's mom screaming all day long. He'll be a good one for either UCLA or USC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXm-tyhc7kg

A few players who are playing this year that I was really impressed with last year:
Reeves Nelson - UCLA Commit (better than the Wear brothers who are ranked higher, reminds me of Calvary with his explosiveness off two feet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxUHLcDGynI)
Jamil Wilson from Wisconsin (6'7", 211 lbs and was running the point very well last year for his team)
Jeremy Tyler (#1 recruit in class of 2010, the only player the New York Gauchos had a real problem with last year, including Demar Derozan, Brandon Jennings, etc. and he was going into his sophomore year).
