From our friends at Big Apple Basketball:
NEW YORK, NY – Big Apple Basketball, Inc. will host the Seventh Annual Big Apple Basketball Challenge in New York City on Saturday, December 18 at Baruch College.
The challenge, which will feature 10 of New York City’s top PSAL and CHSAA teams, will be a one-day event designed to show the supremacy of New York City’s PSAL or CHSAA league on the basketball court.
The challenge will feature PSAL schools, Paul Robeson, Thomas Jefferson, Wings, Wadleigh and South Shore, along with CHSAA schools, Bishop Loughlin, All Hallows, Cardinal Hayes, St. Mary’s and Bishop Ford.
“We’re happy once again to host a meaningful event for New York City student-athletes to participate in during the high school basketball season,” said BAB President, Jason Curry. “It’s great publicity for the kids, as well as a tremendous recruiting tool for college coaches, and great basketball for the general fans.”
The CHSAA leads the six year series, 35-20, with both leagues spliting 4-4 in 2009.
Former event standouts include: Devin Ebanks (Bishop Loughlin/Los Angeles Lakers); Lance Stephenson (Abraham Lincoln/Indiana Pacers); Sylven Landesberg (Holy Cross/European Pro); Kemba Walker (Rice/UConn); Charles Jenkins (Springfield Gardens/Hofstra);and Jayvaughn Pinkston (Bishop Loughlin/Villanova).
