Curie coach Mike Oliver has done it again. The Team Rose Classic has become the best two-day high school basketball event in the area over the past decade. This season’s match ups carry on the tradition. Oliver has assembled a schedule with a nice mix of suburban, city and private schools to face off over two days at Mount Carmel.
The shootout is one of the few high school basketball events that still attracts a large numbers of college coaches. This year’s event is loaded with college prospects and top-ranked teams.
Oliver released the schedule on Sunday.
