While Las Vegas remains home to some of the summer’s top high school basketball action, the economy has shaken things up a bit. The Reebok Summer Championships, the Main Event and the National Youth Basketball Championships are out; the first-year Fab 48 is in; and the Adidas Super 64, entering its seventh year, is now the biggest event in town.
The Super 64, set for July 22-26, will feature 425 teams—up from 270 last year—playing at 13 venues, including host Rancho High School. Top teams include the Atlanta Celtics, Indiana Elite and Compton Magic.
The Fab 48, hosted by Bishop Gorman High School on July 22-25, will have more than 170 teams at six venues, including Memphis Magic Elite and Grassroots Canada, the last two Super 64 champions.
Tickets for the Fab 48 are $12 per day, with a tournament pass available for $40. Super 64 tickets are $14 per day. For complete team listings and schedule, go to lasvegasfab48.com or adidassuper64.com.
