Elite 8 UP Basketball Championship

The Elite 8 UP Basketball Championships features the top four teams from “Small School” – Class D and “Big School” – Class A/B/C mixed into one 8-team bracket.

Teams are virtually playing for “bragging rights” as the over-all UP summer champion.

All teams will play 5-6 games in two days with 3-4 Saturday games in a pool bracket. Teams are then seeded for Sunday according to their Saturday finish and placed into Sunday “Elite 8 UP Championship” bracket.
