What to know about Section 7 HS basketball showcase in Glendale

There are 229 high school basketball teams from 12 states and some big names — most notably twins Cameron and Cayden Boozer (sons of former NBA player Carlos Boozer) and Mikey Williams — playing in this week’s Section 7 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

Twelve courts are set up for 450 games that will be played on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

If last year’s four-day event is any indication, expect more than 500 college coaches to attend. There were 550 coaches last year, when the NCAA-imposed moratorium for Division I schools on in-person recruiting due to COVID-19 was lifted.

This showcase is sponsored by the Arizona Interscholastic Association and run by the Arizona Basketball Coaches Association, with the National Federation of High Schools and the NCAA sanctioning the event.
