We just received the first "semi-official" announcement about this year's Roundball Extravaganza, and it's no longer just a South Orange County event, but will feature players from all over, including Los Angeles, the Valley, San Bernardino and San Diego.

This year's Roundball will feature 7 games as in the past.   We don't yet have as many details as we did last year at this time, (like the schedule) but we do have all the rosters for the various games.

The first year's Roundball Extravaganza was held at Capistrano Valley HS and was attended by more than 1,300 people; two years ago, the Roundball Extravaganza was held at Laguna Hills HS and drew more than 2,500.  Last year it was at Santa Margarita and there was an even bigger crowd.  This year's event, in keeping with the tradition of moving around, will be held at Marina HS in Huntington Beach.

We don't know the ticket prices, but imagine that they'll be similar to year's past (i.e., about $10 for Adults, $6 for students, and $3 for children age 12 and under, but that's a guess, so don't hold us to that).  For additional information about the event, call 949-206-2441. 

Here are the game rosters which we just received:

The headliner games for the boys will be the two evening games, both of which will precede the Girls Top 20 game which will conclude the evening.  Prior to those three games, there will be a rising 9th grade boys' game, a rising sophs game, a rising juniors game, and a girls AAU game.  The top two boys games will look like this:
