21st Annual National Prep School Invitational
NetScouts Basketball helped coordinate the 21st annual National Prep School Invitational again this year. The event was held Thursday through Sunday, January 31 through February 3, 2019, at the Murray Center at Rhode Island College. Once again over 35 of the top prep schools participated including six teams from Canada and teams from the Czech Republic and Sweden. There were 33 games played. Of the 66 game slots 22 were 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.
