In the world of college basketball, we are used to seeing programs travel out of the country for games and usually during their foreign tour. This upcoming high school season we get to experience the same with the Hoopfest in Paradise event that is scheduled to be played in Nassau, Bahamas.
The Hoopfest in Paradise showcase is ran by Director, President, and Founder of Hoopfest Inc, Glenn Smith, who runs elite national events all over the country which includes the Thanksgiving Hoopfest, Red River Hoopfest, Holiday Hoopfest, and more.
This 2022 Bahamas showcase is scheduled for December 16th and 17th at The Kendal G.L. Isaacs National Gymnasium in beautiful Nassau, Bahamas and will feature four nationally known programs, three of them currently being ranked in the top-10 preseason national rankings.
Sunrise Christian (KS), Roselle Catholic (NJ), Duncanville (TX), and Oak Ridge (FL) headline the 4-team field set for December.
A plethora of top-notch highly rated prospects will be expected in the Bahamas for this next level event.
