More than 10 years ago, Jeff Hood's Bojangles Classic attracted a very strong regional and national field. While that event ceased several years ago under that name, Hood and his foundation — Hoodies' House of Hope — are hosting a newly named tournament that's loaded with talent.

Where: Charlotte, N.C. (Ardrey Kell High School)

When: Dec. 27-28, 30

Reporting Staff: Rob Harrington

Top Players: Isaiah Whitehead, D'Angelo Russell, Ahmaad Rorie, Makinde London, Ben Simmons, Obi Enechionyia, Therence Mayimba,, Brandone Francis, Dante Buford, James Demery, Keyshawn Woods, Torin Dorn.

Looking Forward To: The championship game on Monday night between Montverde (Fla.) Academy and Charlotte (N.C.) Northside Christian. Many had expected Brooklyn (N.Y.) Abraham Lincoln to face Montverde in the final, but Northside knocked them off 74-67 on Saturday night.

Also, this will be my first look at potential No. 1 junior Ben Simmons in 18 months.
