The early-season tip-off tournament is named after East Hampton graduate Kendall Madison, who was a standout three-sport athlete in basketball, football and spring track, and was killed in January 1995 at the age of 21. He was a member of East Hampton's New York State Class B Championship basketball team in 1990 and was an All-County, All-League and MVP football player who went on to play football at the University of Connecticut on a full scholarship. The Kendall Madison Foundation and Kendall Madison Scholarship Fund were established in his memory to assist others to achieve their dreams. Madison was posthumously inducted into the East Hampton High School Hall of Fame in 2012.
