The Little League World Series of Youth Basketball
Dallas, Texas – June 25th, 2018 – IndiHoops, a pioneer in the 8th Grade/14U basketball world, is back with its third installment of the IndiWorld Championships (IWC), IndiWorld3. This year’s event will take place from June 28th through July 1st 2018, in Irving, Texas; at the new Drive Nation facility run by former NBA All- Star Jermaine O’Neal.
The level of competition in the event’s first two years has been nothing short of stellar. The event featured Scottie Barnes (a highly-ranked prospect in the high school Class of 2020) in year 1, and Paolo Banchero (also a highly-ranked prospect in the high school Class of 2021) in year 2. The IWC championship game has already seen many players go straight into their high school careers; at such highly- decorated programs as Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, Garfield High School in Seattle, and University High School in Florida.
This year’s tournament will swell to double the size of last year’s; with teams coming from as far away as Toronto, Canada. We have committed representation and attendance from three major shoe brands. States with teams in attendance include California, Nevada, New Mexico, Georgia, North Carolina, Nebraska, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Indiana, and the event’s home state of Texas. The team list includes IndiHoops’ current number one 8th grade team in the nation and event host, Drive Nation, who will look to keep the championship trophy in house, even after the tournament has completed. In addition to the greater than 32-team tournament, the 2018 IWC will debut a new game format with a standalone game featuring two of the best teams in the class of 2023; Team Thomas from California and Team Griffin from Oklahoma.
The championship will be at July 1st, 2018; 11 AM Central Time.
