Had a chance Wednesday Night to catch a semi- final game in the Msgr. King Tournament located off of Flatbush Ave & Flatlands . Hats off to the parish organizers who brought this tournament back in 2014 after a 9 yr. hiatus. Back in the day it was a must go Christmas week tournament for teams & fans of serious H.S. hoops. Hopefully it will continue to attract quality teams for fans to see. With legendary talent evaluator Tom Konchalski consulting with the organizers they put together a quality field this year. 

Friday nights match ups will start with two Consolation Games followed by a Championship Game. Here are the match ups.: 5:15  Manhattan's XAVIER H.S.  vs. Brooklyn's ST. EDMUND'S PREP

                                7:15 CHSAA's NAZARETH H.S. vs. PSAL's BROOKLYN LAW & TECH

CHAMPIONSHIP @ 9:00 PSAL's BEDFORD ACADEMY vs, TAMPA CATHOLIC from FLORIDA

The gym was packed Wednesday as Tampa Catholic beat St. Edmund's & Bedford Academy defeated Xavier H.S. setting up the Friday night Championship. Bedford is well coached by Robert Phelps who has a very quick deep team who push the ball at every opportunity and will defend you full court for every second of 4 quarters. They'll be facing a Florida powerhouse team, Tampa Catholic which has made their state's Final 4 in the last two years. Tall,with several good shooters, (5 of their first six baskets were 3's) quick & athletic at both ends of the court. Bedford will need to be at their best to come away with the win.  I hope this tournament continues to grow & prosper as a show case for NYC players to compete against the best teams around.   Well worth the visit !
