Brackets and match-ups for the 2013 HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational have been announced. Slideshow     2013 Shavlik Randolph Winners Bracket | HighSchoolOT.com 2013 HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational Brackets

The field features 16 boys teams and eight girls teams.

The two boys brackets – the Shavlik Randolph and the Summit Hospitality – are stocked with five-star players. Just about every game features a high-profile recruit.

The games begin on the morning of Dec. 26 with Wilbraham & Monson, out of Massachusetts, against Middle Creek. W&M features Goodluck Okonoboh, the No. 4 center and the No. 19 overall player in his class, according to ESPN.com.

Okonoboh, at 6-foot-9 and 215-pounds, is considering offers to play at Duke, Louisville, NC State, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse, among others.

Up next is a matchup between Apex and Moss Point, Miss., with shooting guard Devin Booker. Booker holds offers from a number of schools, including Duke and UNC. The 6-foot-5, 185-pound shooting guard is rated the No. 2 shooting guard in the Class of 2014 by ESPN.com.

In the afternoon, tournament host Broughton takes the floor against Kinston, the two-time defending N.C. High School Athletic Association 2-A state champions. The Vikings are led by 6-foot-7, 180-pound small forward Brandon Ingram, who is ranked No. 12 overall in the Class of 2015. ESPN gives him five starts and has him listed as the No. 2 player in the country at his position. Ingram currently holds offers from NC State, North Carolina and Wake Forest.

The evening games feature two players already committed to the University of North Carolina – Justin Jackson and Joel Berry.

Berry, a 6-foot, 185-pound point guard at Lake Highland Prep in Orlando, Fla., plays first, with a 7 p.m. tip against Clayton. He'll face stiff competition from one of the top local players from the Class of 2014, Gary Clark.

Clark will lead the Clayton Comets back into the Holiday Invitational this season. At 6-foot-7 and 215 pounds, Clark is a four-star player and the No. 26 power forward in his class, according to ESPN.com. In-state schools to offer Clark include Charlotte, East Carolina, NC State, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington and Wake Forest.

Jackson, who plays for the Homeschool Christian Youth Association in Katy, Texas, stands at 6-foot-7 and 185 pounds. ESPN lists him as a five-star player, the No. 1 small forward in the country, and the No. 8 overall player in the Class of 2014. He'll headline the nightcap, taking on local power Word of God.

Games begin on the morning of Dec. 26 and run through the evening of Dec. 28.

All boys games will be played at Broughton High School's Holliday Gymnasium. Girls games will be played at Cary Academy, with the exception of the championship which will be played at Broughton. 

In the girls tournament, sponsored by Mix 101.5, opening games include Hillside vs. Chapel Hill, Broughton vs. Dudley, West Craven vs. Cary, and Riverside vs. West Forsyth.
