Premier Basketball is a basketball tournament, scouting and recruiting service that helps connect youth boys and girls basketball players with college scouts from around the country, and the brand will be assisting athletes in Central Texas with this and more at the Heroes of the Game Showcase, April 18 – 19, in Round Rock.

“Our primary goal is to market players to colleges to help them achieve their dream of playing basketball at the collegiate level,” said Joey Simmons, CEO and president of Premier Basketball LLC.

Premier Basketball Tournaments has been running NCAA-certified and non-certified events for the past 17 years and is recognized as one of the most influential event operators in the country. Over 2,500 teams and more than 1,000 colleges attended the brand’s events in last year, and even more are expected for 2015.

“We market heavily online, which has helped us become known as one of the most organized tournaments in the country,” Simmons continued. “College coaches choose to attend Premier Basketball events because they are structured, they run on time, and the facilities are the best in the country.”

Besides tournaments, Premier Basketball also offers Premier Basketball Report, the premier scouting report for boys’ and girls’ high school basketball, and Premier Basketball Media, which broadcasts and reports on games, camps, shows and athletes.

“We recently extended service into the international market and are expanding game film opportunities to players, to post on player profiles, for colleges to view,” said Simmons. “And our media group delivers news articles on players, high schools, select basketball, and all other boys’ and girls’ basketball news from around the globe – and that includes Round Rock, Texas.”

The Heroes of the Game Showcase will feature talented 5th through 12th grade students, competing in an exciting two-day tournament. To register, please visit
