Bigfoot Hoops: Elite Athletes Showcase Their Skills

Bigfoot Hoops 2016

The high school basketball season ends in early spring, but that’s just the beginning. Basketball never stops, and the summer season is just around the corner.

Recruiting elite talent is a year-round process, but summer basketball is where things really heat up. As a result, Eastbay has teamed up with Bigfoot Hoops to provide the premier platform for top athletes to showcase their skills to college coaches.

Bigfoot Hoops has created nine major events for the 2016 season, with five major events in Las Vegas, three in Houston, and one in Orlando. Bigfoot Hoops provides players from across the country with the opportunity to participate in first-class events, and the chance to be seen by scouting services, college coaches, press, and fans nationwide during the live recruitment period.
Kentucky’s John Calipari, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, and other top college coaches have all attended past events, searching for the biggest talents of tomorrow. Nearly every current major NBA star or top college recruit has made a name for themselves on the summer basketball circuit, and Bigfoot Hoops has showcased a lot of today’s biggest names.

Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Derrick Rose, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love, and Russell Westbrook are all Bigfoot Hoops alumni, along with a long list of other top NBA and college basketball stars.

The list of distinguished alumni is still growing. Some of the world’s top young talent and future NBA and college basketball stars are making names for themselves at Bigfoot Hoops events. Top-ranked players like Harry Giles, the No. 1 player in the class of 2016 and Duke signee, and Malik Monk, the ninth-ranked player in the class of 2016 and Kentucky signee, have played in Bigfoot Hoops tournaments.

Eastbay has been a national sponsor of Bigfoot Hoops for the past three years, and recently signed another deal to continue to help showcase the Bigfoot Hoops brand and allow athletes all over the country to chase their dreams.
The first four Bigfoot Hoops events this season were held in March and April, with the remaining events held in July to align with heavy recruiting periods. The first Bigfoot Hoops event of the summer, the Orlando Summer Classic, runs from Jul6-10. The full remaining schedule is listed below:

Orlando Summer Classic: July 6-10
Las Vegas Live: July 13-17
Las Vegas Classic: July 20-24
Las Vegas Last Call: July 25-27 (boys) / July 25-28 (girls)

The Las Vegas Classic is the marquee event, with more than 12,000 players, 950 teams, and 2,700 games played over the course of five days. The Las Vegas Classic alone has more than 300 NBA alumni. This year’s event is being billed as the biggest youth basketball showdown the world has ever witnessed.

Watch the video below for more information on the Las Vegas Classic, or visit bigfoothoops.com. And while you’re getting ready for the summer basketball season, be sure to check out Eastbay’s Spotify page to see what today’s biggest athletes are listening to.
