Cooper Invitational 2011

Sunday marked the end of another magical Cooper Invitational high school basketball tournament.  Fifteen teams and nearly 350 people from across the country descended upon our community to join our Cooper Macs and our Memphis Jewish community for four days of intense basketball, inspiring speakers, and unrivaled camaraderie.  Once again, Josh Kahane and his team of volunteers tended to all the logistics and ran an incredibly smooth operation thereby ensuring that the reputation of the Cooper Invitational - the tournament every Jewish high school basketball player in the country longs to be at - continues to grow.

Along with high profile, top tier NCAA coaches and former NBA players, one of the less known, but perhaps most inspiring personalities to address the tournament participants was Charlene Lerner.  Here's her story from ESPN.com:
