One of the country's greatest high school hoops events of all time is back for a 45th season, and it is bringing yet another star-studded lineup for the ages. Let's just say the 2017 Culligan City of Palms Classic is going to be epic, and all of it will be live on FloHoops this December.

Filled with several squads likely to be ranked in the preseason top 25, nearly 20 Flo40 prospects combined in 2018 and 2019, and so many more high-major players, the recently released field is going to make Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Fort Myers, FL, the hottest gym to be in the nation from December 18-23.

Last season was absolutely crazy, too, when Montverde Academy (FL) downed Memphis East (TN) in the championship game:
