About Bank Hoops
“The Bank: The Michigan High School Basketball Player Databank” was founded by then college student Stephen Bell in 1996. Today the Bank Hoops scouting service has nearly 150 client schools at every level across the country. Bell is the only scout in Michigan with both a professional journalism (honored for Michigan Associated Press’ “Best Sports Writing” 2006) and coaching (over career 200 wins with Parallel 45 and ACB/Bank Hoops) background.
Bank Hoops also plays host to the state’s longest-running instruction/exposure event, the Bank Hoops All-State Minicamp, as well as the Bank Hoops Underclassman All-State Minicamp, Bank Hoops Spring Minicamp and Steve Bell/Rashad Phillips College Guard Workshop.
