Houston Kingwood Classic

The largest AAU tournament in the Country starts this Friday in Houston. Every top club will be there, including all the elite California teams up and down the coast...

Hal Pastner does it the right way - organized, efficient and first-class. Maybe that's why nearly every big-time team is coming to Houston this weekend for the loaded Kingwood Classic.

While most tournaments are loaded with teams from one shoe affiliation, Pastner's Kingwood Classic (Texas), which begins Friday night and concludes Sunday late afternoon, boasts the elite Nike, adidas and Reebok teams from around the country.

``This is something that's never been done," said Pastner, who runs the Houston Hoops program. "An event like this has never taken place."

Pastner will have more than 400 teams and 5,500 players converge in Houston this weekend. That will also mean that nearly every college in America will send a pair of coaches to Kingwood.
