Norman Ostrin High School Invitational
The Entertainer’s Basketball Classic (EBC) announces the launch of their first annual Norman Ostrin High School Invitational tournament, a Tri-State basketball competition between invited elite High School-aged traveling teams from across New York City’s five boroughs, Westchester, Connecticut and New Jersey. These elite High School-aged traveling teams will play against each other for the bragging rights that they are the best in their area and the opportunity to represent their Borough/Area in the 2010 Entertainer’s Basketball Classic this summer.
The Norman Ostrin Invitational will begin Friday, June 4th at 5:30pm. Unlike most High School tournaments, all games will be played outside and most will be played under the lights.

“We want only the best High School-aged traveling teams to play in the Entertainer’s Basketball Classic,” said Greg Marius, CEO and creator of the EBC. “We created this High School Invitational where the top 8 teams from Brooklyn would play each other to see who was the best in Brooklyn. Then that team would represent Brooklyn this summer in the Entertainer’s Basketball Classic. The same will be true for each of the Tri-State areas.”
The Norman Ostrin Invitational will be played at New York’s famed Rucker Park, the mecca of street basketball, where many an NBA Player played while they were still in High School including Rafer Alston, Sebastian Telfair, OJ Mayo, Michael Beasley, Jerryd Bayless, Kevin Love, Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday and NBA-bound Lance Stephenson, Derrick Favors and John Wall.
