Dayton Top 100 release November 20

The most anticipated pre-season date for girls hoops in the Miami Valley is scheduled for Sunday, November 20, as the annual Dayton Top 100 and Freshman to Watch list will be released here on The Dabbelt Report.

Also something new this year, the Dayton Dream Team will be released LIVE on Twitter this year. The Dream Team highlights the top 25 players in the Dayton area (only sophs, jrs and srs) and if you follow Jim Dabbelt on Twitter (@JDabbs86) you can get the very first word on who is selected to that elite group.This list will also be posted to the website shortly after being release on Twitter. As for how it will be released on Twitter, that will also be announced later.

The Top 100 banquet is still in limbo, and will be decided this weekend whether that happens again this year. One sponsor is requested to assist with this great day for the girls. Whether the banquet happens or not, the Top 100 release will be great publicity for the hard-working players of the Dayton area.

Reminder, the first day of practice for the Ohio girls is Friday, October 28.
