20th Annual National Prep School Invitational
NetScouts Basketball will help coordinate the 20th annual National Prep School Invitational again this year. The event will be held Wednesday through Sunday, January 31 through February 4, 2018, at the Murray Center at Rhode Island College. Once again over 30 of the top prep schools will participate including international teams from the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Canada and Ireland. There are 36 games scheduled. Of the 72 game slots 23 are allocated to international teams.
Since its inception, the NPSI has had over 1000 future Division I college players showcase their talents. Alumni of the National Prep School Invitational include NBA players Andre Drummond, Andrew Wiggins, Steven Adams, Shabazz Napier, Anthony Bennett, Noah Vonleh, Nik Stauskas, Michael Carter-Williams, Jamal Murray and Thon Maker. Players who were selected in the 1st round of the 2017 NBA Draft that participated include: Jonathan Issac, Lauri Markkanen, Donovan Mitchell, Tyler Lydon and Kyle Kuzma. There are only five events that take place during the high school/prep school season. The NPSI ranks among the finest.
We will be publishing a special issue on the 2018 NPSI as part of our International Recruiting Service. If you can’t make it to the event it would be worthwhile to subscribe to the service as there were over 150 Division 1 recruits that participated.
