    You have to be really good and stand out from your teammates and dominate competion. It also helps if you play for a school that plays against good competion. Scouts don't want to see you beat up on sucky teams.

    Play AAU. The big national tournaments are absolutely covered with college scouts.

    It looks like a year, but it's not. It's a ratio - the diameter of the rim (18 inches) to the diameter of the ball (9 inches). Eighteen to nine. 18 to 9. The rim is SO much bigger. You have to wonder how anyone ever figured they missed some crucial shot by only an inch.

    You will see them at 16U but primarily at the 17U games. They usually only go to the big tourneys so unless you play for a top-notch AAU team you will usually not play in the big tourneys.

    If you are going to play in college whether it be D1, D2, D3, or JUCO, you should play your senior year in HS. Why would you not?
