December is a stage for girls' basketball

Each December, the thoroughbreds of girl's high school basketball teams make the Nike Tournament of Champions (TOC) in Chandler, Ariz., the marquis event for their sport. The tournament earned its reputation with steady growth over the years. The lineup has featured the participation of 84 teams that went on to earn their respective state championships that particular season. Ten of those teams went on to be voted as national champions in those respective years.

This year's Joe Smith Division (the strongest of 12 separate brackets) features 16 teams, nine of which are currently ranked in the ESPN HoopGurlz HS Nation Top 25. Making it a truly national event is the fact that 12 of the 16 spots in the Smith Division represent different states.
