Top-ranked Montrose Christian's season is on hold until a likely bid to the National High School Invitational in one month, but the Mustangs begin another season Tuesday night.

The team will be featured in an eight-week television reality series "Hoops Academy." The program will air on Fox College Sports on Tuesdays beginning this week.

"They've done a nice job from what I've seen," said Montrose Christian Coach Stu Vetter, who attended a screening of the first episode this past weekend. "It's a pretty good look inside high school basketball and what we do at Montrose."

Vetter said that neither he nor the school are being paid to participate in the show.

"It's great exposure for the school and an opportunity for people to have an inside look at our basketball program," Vetter said.
