Great chance to see ex-Huskies

Wanted to highlight a small note in our college basketball notebook today about the “Rip The Cut” basketball tournament taking place Saturday-Monday at Cleveland High School in Seattle.
Many es-huskies are scheduled to play in this tournament, including Brandon Roy, Nate Robinson, Will Conroy, Tre Simmons, Eldridge Recasner and Doug Wrenn, as well as other players with local ties such as Aaron Brooks, Jamal Crawford and C.J. Giles, and a few high schoolers such as Tony Wroten Jr. Also heard Shawn Kemp may play. (Current college players can’t participate due to NCAA rules).
The tournament is a memorial for a former Garfield High player named Rahsaan Phillips (here’s a story detailing the history of the tournament) and has emerged as one of the top off-season events for local players. The teams usually split down high school lines, so you can see Robinson and some of his Rainier Beach High teammates go against Roy and the Garfield guys, etc.
It’s a double-elimination tournament, so after the first day you have to keep tabs to know who is playing when. There are also two games going on at once, so where is a lot of activity.
I’m told that a team headed up by Brooks will play at 9 a.m. Saturday, teams headed up by Robinson and Recasner will play at 11 a.m., and a team headed up by Roy and Conroy at noon.
Admission is $8 per day.
