The Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association has canceled the Division I Basketball Showcase that was set to take place in late June.
The WIAA cited precautions surrounding COVID-19 as the reason for canceling the event, which drew college coaches from around the country last year. The invite-only event offers the top boys basketball players across the state an opportunity to play against high-level talent in front of college coaches.
Here is the full press release:
Division I Basketball Showcase Cancelled
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association have made the decision to cancel the Division I Basketball Showcase scheduled for June 27-28 at Bellevue College.
This decision was made with the safety of participants in mind as this event requires travel from coaches and athletes from around the state of Washington and the United States. Due to the uncertainty of this health crisis and the recruiting window set forth by the NCAA, there are no plans to reschedule the event at this time.
