4th Annual adidas-Mats' Madness
Middle School Tourney Schedules Too--(May 25, 2000)

While most of the 14-u teams that we know about will be traveling to San Diego this wekeend for the High Five America Tournament at USIU, or the other big San Diego tournament, the Rising Stars-BCI Western Regional, a few of the younger players who work with some of the top travel programs who are bringing their older (i.e., high school) teams to Fresno for the 4th Annual adidas "Mats' Madness" tournament will also be bringing some younger guys, who will play in the Mats' Madness Middle School Tournament.

On the assumption that some folks are also interested in watching the up-and-coming players at the 8th grade level, the schedule for the Middle School tournament is below.  But please, don't get confused, this schedule and the pool assignments  below are only for the junior high school portion of the tournament which will take place at Fresno Hoover HS.   We know that no matter how many times we say it, someone will get confused and head over to Hoover HS expecting to see the 805 team with Dommanic Ingerson, or some other player, but the high schoolers won't be playing at Hoover.  Don't say we didn't warn you.  The high school tournament schedules and pools can be found here at this link.  

In any event, here's what's happening with the 8 team Middle School tournament:

Pool A Pool B
Oakland Slam N Jam
Pates #2
805 Middle School
NorCal Elite
Hoop Ridaz
Pates #1 Middle School

Please also be aware that the Middle School tournament will only run on Saturday and Sunday. Here's the daily schedule for the Mats' Madness Middle School tournament:
