Back 2 School

While iLuvBBall covers all aspects of basketball, our bread-and-butter, our wheelhouse is in our coverage of our local players, starting at the grassroots community basketball level – the in-house community programs; leading into travel & AAU programs; on up to High School JV and Varsity programs; and now that we’ve been around a bit, the following our “Alum” players blessed to play basketball on the collegiate level.

So with that said, we at would like to wish all student-athletes, teachers, coaches, administrators, and all who work in the school system a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New School Year!

We hope our student athletes take advantage of this early time to continue or develop study habits that match the enthusiasm and drive that we see a lot of you players put in on the court. Remember your “job title” at this point of your life is STUDENT ATHLETE. Notice which adjective (descriptive word) comes first – STUDENT! So as much as we would love to cover all players in our region, let’s make sure first and foremost that you are academically eligible to step on the court.



So the ball can’t bounce for everybody and we at iLuvBBall understand that there’s more to the game than what goes on on the court. We invite any teacher or student interested in finding out more about other aspects of sports, especially the coverage of sports, contact us at Whether for a special writing assignment in English or a as part of an elective that touches business, marketing, graphic design, etc., we are willing and able to work with or develop something for the students in the stands also.



iLuvBBall is excited to extend it’s Collegiate Coverage of players that have left our region to go on to bigger and better things. We’ve followed favorites like Alum Justin Wright-Foreman at Hofstra, Mike Almonacy at Stony Brook, Kaela Hilaire at Seton Hall, and more, we would like to continue doing such for students of all levels (DI, DII, DIII, JUCO, etc.). If there’s a player you’d like for us to highlight for our “Where They’re At Wednesdays” feel free to email us their name, school (past and present), and how they’re doing to



Tryouts for the 2017 Alzheimer’s All-Star Basketball Classic Game begin this week! The event organizers at are looking for the very top Long Island Boys and Girls Juniors and Seniors (and exceptional Sophomores if you thing you are the Island’s best). Not only will you get the opportunity to play for a great cause, you also get to compete on behalf of the County you live in for bragging rights, and as an EXTRA BONUS, Collegiate programs have been invited to evaluate at the tryouts as well as attending the showcase games to get a jump at the upcoming recruitment period! Tryouts are open to all players who attend a school in Long Island – Public or Private. Players, parents, and coaches, if you think your student athlete is a great candidate for this opportunity we urge you to pre-register to tryout (registered players get first priority at any and all tryout locations), come on down, and show what you have the game organizing committee and the coaches that attend.
