The Top 100 boys and Top 100 girls from Minnesota in each class and selected players from neighboring states were invited to participate in the Top 100 Expo Showcase Thursday, July 6, at The College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.
Over 120 players registered for the 2016 Top 100 Expo.
Invitations will be sent in February to head coaches. If a deserving player has not been invited by March 1, any high school coach may recommend a player for an invitation by emailing email@example.com.
Each Expo will be limited to the first 80 players to enroll. Invited players should send in their registration form as soon as possible to reserve a spot. Eight teams of 8-10 players will be drafted and placed into an 8-team tournament bracket.
Players will play three games in one days before college coaches and the Minnesota Basketball News staff, who will evaluate players for the 2017-2018 pre-season Top 100 Player List for each class - 50 boys and 50 girls.
The games will involve an 8-team bracket playoff for the Top 100 Expo over-all championship. All teams will be coached by college coaches from the MCAC, Minnesota's two-year college conference. All-star teams of 10 players will be named along with an over-all MVP for both boys and girls.
College coaches are invited to attend free of charge. A schedule and list of players will be sent within two weeks of the event to all college coaches in MN-ND-SD-NE-IA-WI. Complete player profiles will be provided free to all coaches in attendance and will be available for $30 by mail to coaches not in attendance.
Write firstname.lastname@example.org to order a Player Profile from this event.
Players must register with an official registration form, which will be sent by "invitation only" to each individual player.
Reminder: Head coaches can recommend a top player on their team for an invitation by emailing email@example.com.
