The 68th Annual H.S. All-Star Tournament, featuring some of the nation’s premier AAU teams Rivers and finest HS stars from the tri-state region.
Sunday, March 23rd through Thursday March 27th, 2 games nightly, these stars will shine in the intimate confines of the CYP Gym which has a remarkable history of its own.
Big name players like Kyrie Irving, Meta World Peace, Stephon Marbury, Elton Brand, Moe Harkless, Lamar Odom, Kevin Jones, and back-in-the-day stars such as Ed Pinkney, Nate Archibald, Pearl Washington and Billy Cunningham have all made appearances in this Port Chester gym in the past.
