Holiday Coverage Begins!

<b>FORT MYERS, Fla. –</b> Since 1973 they've been playing "The Classic" right around Christmas time. Since 1994 the event has been at Bishop Verot High. This year's field is star studded.

The City of Palms Classic is the pride and joy of tournament director Donnie Wilkie, who moved the event to Bishop Verot High in 1994. Since 2000, it's been a pre-Christmas ritual for TheInsidersHoops.com.

This year, "The Classic" as the locals refer to it, is star-studded.

Bremerton senior Marvin Williams will be there. So will Seagoville's Lamarcus Aldridge and LSU's Glen Davis. Mix in a little Mike Williams of Wilcox Central; add in a few outstanding juniors like South Gwinnett's Louis Williams and you've got the recipe for the nation's elite pre-Christmas event.

TheInsidersHoops.com begins its holiday coverage with The City of Palms Classic on Dec. 18. We'll be in the house for the first three days of the tournament. The day after Christmas we head to Lewes, Del., for The Slam Dunk To The Beach and kickoff the New Year at the Dell Curry Shootout.
