The Oklahoma City Storm homeschool team is bringing several of the region’s top basketball programs to the city for a two-day festival to be held at Hillsdale Freewill Baptist College in Moore Friday and Saturday.

In addition to the OKC Storm boys and girls teams, the event will also include Sunrise Christian from Wichita, Kan., which is led by Oklahoma commit Jacob Hammond. A 6-foot-10 junior forward, Hammond played last season for the Storm.

Other teams participating include Planet Academy from Phoenix, Word of Life boys and girls from Wichita, God’s Academy boys and girls from Dallas and the St. Louis Patriettes girls team.
