Happy Holidays to all and I hope it was a good one. It’s that time of the year where Liberty HS is the place to be to watch elite high school basketball players and games. The 2022 Les Schwab Invitational #LSI26 is one of the top tournaments in the world and it’s starts today in Hillsboro, Oregon.

This years will be special because it will feature 2023 G Bronny James, 2025 F Bryce James and their Sierra Canyon squad. Yes, Bronny and Bryce are the sons of NBA royalty Lebron James. Lebron is well known to attend some of his sons games so you never know who will be in attendance this week. Sierra Canyon is ranked #18 in the country. Five star 2024 Isaiah Elohim and 2023 Ashton Hardaway are amongst players to watch.
Duncanville HS is the heavy favorite to win this year tournament. Duncanville is rated #1 team in the country and features a boat load of talent including 5⭐️ Texas signee Ron Hollands.
Bishop Gorman is rated #19 in the country and is ready to put on a show at the #LSI26. They will be lead by four star juniors (2024) Jase Richardson, Juni Mobley and four star 2025 Chris Nwuli.
