KIT Tournament Overview

The Paul W. “Frosty” Francis Kingswood Invitational Tournament, now in its 57th year, is one of Kingswood Oxford's most cherished (and most fun) traditions.

If you follow sports, you are likely familiar with some of the iconic venues and good-natured rivalries – Rucker Park in New York City, where basketball legends emerged; the unforgettable Lakers-Celtics rivalry of the 1980s; and of course, since this is Husky territory, the many, many nights of March Madness and trips to the Final Four courtesy of UConn.

But when you check in with KO alums and prep school basketball players from the 1970s, ‘80s, and beyond, the KIT ranks right up there with the best of them, in terms of roaring crowds, standing-room-only gyms, nail-biters, buzzer beaters, memorable individual performances, and overall great competition.

The Kingswood Oxford Invitational truly represents what is best about high school athletics in general, and independent school basketball, in particular: In addition to showcasing skillful play and sportsmanship, it brings together people of all ages and backgrounds, cultivating friendships and camaraderie born out of competition.



The KIT's carry a rich history of tradition and sportsmanship. Click here to see a brief recap of results from the last 10 years.
Thank you for participating in the 56th Paul “Frosty” Francis Kingswood Oxford Invitational Tournament.
