The Hoop Group Tip ­Off Showcase provides for some of the most exciting match-­ups of the High School Basketball Season.  It features 10 boys games over two days.

In past years, the Tip Off Showcase has featured multiple current NBA players, such as Karl Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Randy Foye of the Brooklyn Nets, JR Smith of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kyle Anderson of the San Antonio Spurs among others.  Last year, the Showcase featured high-level Division I players in Tyus Battle – St. Joseph’s Metuchen – Syracuse, Temple Gibbs – Seton Hall Prep – Notre Dame, Kodye Pugh – Blair – Stanford and many more.
