Most events that were forced to cancel during the 2020-2021 high school season are gathering teams and dates to make their return and one of those major national events that never disappoints includes the Kevin Durant Hoopfest series. Travis Haddock, director of the KD National Hoopfest series events, has announced the locations for the 2021-2022 high school season.
