iS8/Nike Teams & Schedules

On Thursday evening, the iS8/Nike Tip-Off Fall Classic began. This year's tournament will have 12 divisions and sixty teams.

Each team will play four games and the top two teams in each division will move forward into the playoffs.

Some teams have been eliminated due to poor performance and a few new teams have been added to show and prove.

Some of the usual suspects will be participating, like New Jersey's Playaz Club, NY Gauchos, Juice All-Stars, NY Panthers and the MetroHawks.

The back-to-back champion Shooting Stars will be back along with the team that beat them before they won back-to-back, JR's All-Stars..

Also, look for the stars to shine. Players such as Lance Stephenson, Omari Lawrence, Kevin Parrom, Tobias Harris, JayVaughn Pinkston, Sherrod Wright and Durand Scott will go hard at each other as every game counts.

There are also some first timers like Bishop Ford, Long Island Lutheran, Princeton Day Academy and the Lehigh Valley Elite Heat.

Unique to this year's tournament, iS8/Nike Commissioner Pete Edwards has created four divisions in which all the teams are high school teams. "This way the best high school teams will be represented in the playoffs," says Edwards.

The games this year will be played from Thursday through Sunday in three locations. In Queens, the location will be at Intermediate School #8 (108-35 167th St. Jamaica, NY 11433). The game locations in Brooklyn are the Brownsville Recreation Center (1555 Linden Blvd.) and George Gerschwin JHS (800 Van Siclen Ave.).
