For 40 years running now, the Holiday Invitational Tournament has been a staple of high school basketball in North Carolina. Held at Raleigh’s Broughton HS, which was home to Pistol Pete, Shavlik Randolph, and former SLAMonline blogger Mark Carroll amongst others, it offers a sick ambiance to go along with a trophy case that any hoophead would die to get a glimpse of. John Wall may be the current king of Raleigh basketball, but the legacy that Pistol Pete left on this area has lasted for generations.
Formerly sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and referred to by many as “The Glaxo,” HighSchoolOT.com stepped in and picked up the sponsorship this time around. Our friends from Ballislife had a huge presence in the building, ranging from multiple cameras to a stand selling shirts that had dope videos playing on replay. Overall, it was a sick week of hoops with some legit talent from all over the country.
Chapel Hill HS won the Shavlik Randolph Bracket for local HS...
