Our Story


GothamHoops.com was launched in 2009 as a platform to spotlight high school basketball recruits throughout New York. Founder Ray Anczelowicz began traveling to games at 16 years old in search of up-and-coming prospects. Ray published his evaluations online and directly contacted college coaches from two-and-four year basketball programs. His efforts would eventually lead to scholarship offers for many of the unsung student-athletes featured on the site.

In 2014 we hosted our first-ever event. The Inaugural Gotham Hoops Invitational hosted 40 of the best men's college basketball seniors from the Tri-State Area. Participants compete before local fans and international scouts each year. Event alumni have gone onto sign pro contracts in the NBA, G League and EuroLeague.

The Gotham Hoops Classic debuted in 2018 and hosted 17 boy's prep and post-grad basketball programs. Teams traveled from all over the U.S. and Ontario to participate. More than 200 recruits played in front of college and pro scouts.
