The inaugural Next Level Hoops Fest, created and operated by Knight Eady, took place in December of 2014 at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee. Eight high school boys basketball teams traveled from across the country to showcase their talent. The programs in the inaugural tournament have won a combined 32 state championships, including eight in the last two years. Several high-profile college coaches attended the event in its first year, as the players and coaches represent the best programs in their respective states. Next Level aims to create highly competitive matchups that produce excellent high school hoops, and Knight Eady is excited to see the tournament continue to raise the level and competition of high school basketball in the coming years.
