Whose Shooting? "MADE" You Look!!! Better than Basketball Spotlight? STOP IT!!!

Imagine a place where children share tears of agony and as well as tears of joy; a place where parents and loved one cheer their hearts out for the ones they love.  Without noise or sound a simple visual would present a picture of children being hugged but why are some crying and some smiling? Joy and pain?  Where is this place?

Imagine a place where seconds seem like an eternity for some and for others in the same space it seems as if time is ticking too fast.  This is a place where dads congregate, mothers catch up, and friends run, play, and laugh together.  Capacity crowds, camera’s, flashing and BOOM! Instantaneously stars are born!

Imagine a place where those in attendance are from places such as Canada, Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Utah, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Florida, and are vying for a singular piece of hardware that represents achieving at the highest level.  No parking spaces, no seats – standing room only something good must be happening in place such as this! 

Many years ago National Champion and former NC State Coach Jim Valvano told us all that, “If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.”  

Well there is something very special that began this weekend that requires no imagination; Basketball Spotlight open its tournament circuit with its Tip Off Classic in Neptune New Jersey in impressive fashion showing again why they are the elite and premier tournament circuit for the top youth players in middle school basketball.  The allure and legend of the Spotlight already exist and doesn’t need to be “made” it’s already established.  

On an annual basis Mike Melton’s tournament circuit attracts the top and teams from throughout the United States regardless of the type of sneakers you choose to where on your feet and this weekend was no different.  The gyms are packed, the games highly contested, and nations best players step center stage showing why there are considered the best of the best versus the stars of tomorrow looking to take their crown.

When you are talking tournament circuits – points are issued to the top finishers who are then invited to a championship tournament at year end is an ingenious idea that keeps teams alive and in contention all season long; there is no better tournament circuit in youth basketball tournaments in America.    

Many played this past weekend, but if it wasn’t in Neptune, NJ you “made” a big mistake.

Stay tuned for some exciting coverage from on the happening from the Tip Off Classic - real stars, real action, and real media coverage for the best player in the country.
