Kreul Classic Showcase to feature top local basketball teams

Some of South Florida’s best boys’ basketball teams are set to face good early tests this weekend at the Kreul Classic Showcase.

The event, which will take place Friday and Saturday at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, features all three reigning state champions from Broward County — Dillard, Blanche Ely and Coral Springs — as well as several other teams that could reach Lakeland this season.

Among the top matchups is Friday night’s clash between Ely and Miami Norland. The Vikings had won four consecutive state titles before that streak was snapped last season by Dillard.

The Panthers have a big showdown of their own Saturday night against perennial state powerhouse Sagemont. Miami Christian, ranked No. 1 in Miami-Dade to open the season will take on Miami Country Day, and 2015-16 Class 3A state runner-up Westminster Academy will take on much-improved NSU University School as part of the Saturday slate.
