Phoenix, AZ – The 11th Annual Area Codes Basketball Easter Classic was held April 19-20 in Goodyear, Arizona.

22 teams from Nevada, New Mexico, Texas & Arizona participated as several national scouting services attended as well as JUCO,DIII and NAIA college coaches evaluated players.

Special thanks to Big City Hoops Scouting Service, Ty Jacobs, Anthony Ray (ArizonaPreps), Dennis Coleman (World Hoops Scouting Service, as well as head coaches Dan Nichols (South Mountain College), Duane Eason (Phoenix College), Michael Stewart (Tohono O’Odham College), Mark Bunker (Scottsdale College), Guy Meyer (Glendale College), Matt Dickman (Buena Vista University – Iowa) as well as a few other coaches and scouts that stopped to check out some games during the Easter Weekend.

Area Codes Basketball Scouting Service & other Scouting Services send out a report to 300+ Division I, II, III, NAIA & JUCO college coaches around the country, this helps student-athletes gain exposure as well as the aau/club teams they participate for during the NCAA LIve Viewing periods, as tournament directors ask us for advice on how to match teams in certain divisions.
