High school basketball enthusiasts will want to try their hand at the Deseret News High School Hoops contest, which gets underway Friday.

Participants can compete with their friends and against our sports gurus, or compete in the general contest to win weekly prizes and the overall prize — Deseret News Deal Dollars.

In addition to tracking their picks, participants can create private groups and manage them from the site. Other features include personal stats, winners, leaders and celebrity picks.
