The 11th annual Dante Anderson Memorial Invitational will feature girls & boys basketball teams from South Florida, Central Florida, and North Central Florida that will be competing in the memorial.

The tournament pays homage to one of the greatest basketball players of all-time in the Gainesville area, Dante Anderson of Eastside, who was tragically killed in a car accident in May of 2007.  Anderson led the Rams to their only boys’ basketball state title in school history that same year.
