Two Henlopen North schools, Cape Henlopen, and Smyrna, are part of the 2017 Slam Dunk To The Beach field. The tournament will be held December 27-29 at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes, DE.
It could prove to be a step toward the DIAA championship. The past four state champs have played in the tournament prior to winning the title. Smyrna used their experience at Slam Dunk in the run to the 2017 championship. “Last year’s event provided such a valuable opportunity and learning experience for our team,” Eagles head coach Andrew Mears said.
Cape advanced to the second round of the 2017 state tournament and return seniors Randy Rickards and Ian Robertson.
Slam Dunk has featured several prominent players who are now the stars in the NBA including LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Durant.
