CSG National Prep Showcase

With the announcement of the inaugural CSG National Prep Showcase set for November 19-21 in at the Vorhees Coliseum, South Jersey has now become host to the premier prep hoops event in the nation. 18 teams from around the country will converge next week in Vorhees, NJ for a weekend of spectacular big time basketball action.
With the unfortunate postponement of the 2004 "War on the Shore" event held the last two years in Milford, DE, there was a void in the November hoops calendar for college coaches itching to get an early look at the prep school talent, and for the prep school teams who had planned to attend the War.
CSG International president Rich Marcucci, veteran organizer of the popular Atlantic Cape Camps and numerous high school and AAU events over the years, stepped up and quickly established a new event to fill the void.
The result of Marcucci's efforts is the CSG National Prep Showcase. The 18 teams participating in the event include the cream of the crop among the prep school ranks. Top-rated players scheduled to appear include 6-foot-11 Andray Blatche, 6-foot-10 Vernon Goodridge, 6-foot-9 Leo Criswell, 6-foot-7 Sam Young, 6-foot-7 Shane Clark, 6-foot-6 Dwayne Anderson, 6-foot7 Antonio Pena, 6-foot-6 Shamari Spears, 6-foot-8 Shawne Williams, 6-foot-6 Jeff Adrien, and 6-foot-3 Maurice Joseph among others.
Fans and coaches can expect to see more than 100 Division I prospects in action over the course of the weekend!
