Boston High School: New England Storm

BABC to host Boston Shootout this weekend

June, 2, 2011
The Boston Amateur Basketball Club will be hosting the 2011 Boston Shootout this Saturday and Sunday, June 4-5, at Tufts University's Cousens Gymnsium. The weekend event marks the 39th year of the longstanding tournament that has annually featured some of the top youth basketball teams and players in the region.

“We are excited to host some unbelievable talent in this year's tournament,” Shootout Tournament Director Jay Demings said in a press release. “The Northeast is full of elite-level basketball players who are among the best nationally. The teams and players taking part will showcase some extremely talented young people who will play on the next level very soon.”

This year's Shootout will consist of a freshman and a junior division, where top area talent will be on display. Participating clubs include the Metro Hawks (N.Y.), Middlesex Magic, Connecticut Select, New England Storm, Albany City Rocks (N.Y.), Connecticut Basketball Club and tournament host BABC.

One particularly interesting game on the first day falls in the Junior A division, where BABC's highly-touted big man Nerlens Noel could potentially match up against CBC's Andre Drummond, the No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2012. That game will be followed by the Mike Crotty Memorial Game at 5:45, to be held between the late Crotty's Middlesex Magic and the Albany City Rocks.
