NetScouts Basketball will be helping to coordinate the 18th annual National Prep School Invitational again this year. The event will be held Thursday through Sunday, February 4 through February 7, 2016, at the Murray Center at Rhode Island College, 600 Mount Pleasant Avenue, Providence, R.I. Once again there will be over 30 of the top prep schools participating including international teams from the Czech Republic, Finland and Canada.
This annual college exposure event features the traditional New England powers along with teams from across the USA as well as Orangeville Prep (Canada), Helsinki Basketball Academy (Finland) and GB Academy of Prague.
Since its inception, the NPSI has had over 1000 future Division I college players showcase their talents. Many have gone on to the NBA or overseas. Alumni of the National Prep School Invitational include NBA players Andre Drummond, Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Napier, Nerlens Noel, Anthony Bennett, Noah Vonleh, Nik Stauskas, Russ Smith, and Mitch McGary. There are only five events that take place during the high school/prep school season. The NPSI ranks among the finest as evidenced by this year’s draft.
