This week’s MVP Podcast focuses on Boys
and Girls Basketball and arguably Ohio’s TOP 2 Hoops Events…

First up we preview the prestigious Classic in the Country
as we talk to event founder and Ohio Girls Basketball Report guru Tom
Jenkins
.

Since its inaugural run in 2004, the Classic in the
Country
has become a whose-who of high school girls
basketball. And it’s also become a showcase for state champions. Over
the last seven years, 21 of Ohio’s 28 state champions have played in
the CIC. This year three reigning state champions are in the fold
again. Overall, 45 Final Four teams in Ohio have played in the CIC
during the season they made the state semifinals. Did we mention the
last seven Ms. Basketball winners have also played in the CIC?

Next we preview the Good Samaritan Hospital Flyin to the Hoop
boys basketball invitational by talking to FTTH founder and president
Eric
Horstman
.

The ninth annual Good Samaritan Hospital Flyin’ to the Hoop
extravaganza gets underway Saturday at Kettering’s Trent Arena and
features 34 teams and 19 games over three days. Of the 24 Ohio teams in
this year’s field, 19 are ranked in our OhioHShoops.com and
JJHuddle.com State Power Poll
. Dunbar (D-II) and Taft (D-III) are
No. 1. Of the nine national teams, three (Miller Grove, Ga.; Whitney
Young, Ill.; and Simeon, Ill.) are ranked in national polls. Four
others feature players ranked in the Top 10 nationally in the senior,
junior, sophomore and yes, even freshman, classes.

We’re spoiled in Ohio this week. Very rarely do you get the
opportunity to see this much talent in one place over three days.

All of this as always is brought to you for free courtesy of
JJHuddle.com and Miami Valley Sports Magazine.

Listen
up, people!
And enjoy…
