To the editor:

On behalf of the Ohio Valley Hoops Classic and Southern State Community College, I wanted to thank each of you for partnering with us to help present the Ohio Valley Hoops Classic this past weekend.

Below is an email from Xenia Coach Kent Anderson which summed up the attitude of all the participating teams.

I can't thank you enough for everything this past Friday.

Everything, I mean everything, was first class.

The competition, the hospitality, feeding our teams, the venue, all the
people who ran the event, the T-shirts. Just fantastic.

Thank you so much. Yes we want to come back, hopefully play better.

I think the first game/bright lights showed our inexperience. Princeton
was tough, and we learned this weekend....that's what we were after.

Once again, thank you so much.

Also, here is a video clip which appeared in SLAM magazine, which is a big player in the high school basketball recruiting world.

Once again, thank you so much for participating in this event.
