San Diego Nike National Prep Classic:
Mayor's Cup--"Ruby" Division Bracket & Schedule--(Dec. 25, 1998)

There are six brackets for the San Diego Nike National Prep Classic. Only two of them are 16 team brackets, the National and American Brackets.   The rest are (with the exception of the "Diamond" division) 8 team brackets.  And it's true for all of these brackets that if you're trying to follow the progress of just a single team (e.g., you are a player, parent or just a fan of one team in particular) then you must know which bracket your team is in because the various brackets don't compete against one another.

The Ruby Division features:

Wesley College (a team from Australia), Sweetwater (National City, CA), Carlsbad, Robert McQueen (Reno, NV), Palo Verde (Las Vegas, NV), Scripps Ranch (San Diego), El Camino (Oceanside, CA), and Kilsyth (Melbourne, Australia).

Again, we've tried to take the work out of it for you all and provided not only the brackets graphically, but also a schedule for each of the brackets. Remember, the tournament runs from Saturday December 26, through Wednesday (New Year's Eve), December 31, 1998, and the games will be held at 5 different locations, with the brackets playing games all over the place.  

Here's the Mayor's Cup Ruby Division Bracket, and the Mayor's Cup Ruby Division Schedule.  Please Note: We've already posted up a Composite Schedule for all the Saturday Games.  This one is just for the "Mayor's Cup Ruby" Division.  We'll be posting the others up separately as well.
