Since 1989 BEST in the WEST tournaments have offered the finest local and regional high school basketball competition. In that time, we have grown from a local high school summer event, into a group that now organize dozens of high school (and soon AAU and travel ball for all ages) seasonal showcases and summer tournaments. We offer quality events for both boys and girls and do so for all levels (Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity).
