With the high school hoops scene officially coming to a close across the country, the return of the AAU hoops circuit will be ramping up once again. adidas has always focused on the prep scene, and they’ve wasted no time getting the ball rolling by launching a new tournament in Las Vegas. Are you ready to feel old and decrepit? The classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015 will be represented in the inaugural adidas VIP Exclusive Run grassroots basketball tournament. The tournament kicked off today at Green Valley High School in Las Vegas. New to the adidas elite basketball tournament schedule, adidas VIP Exclusive Run hosts 48 of the top 15, 16 and 17-year old AAU teams in the country.
