... To bring word of a local high school hoops event.
Here are the details, courtesy of Courtside Entertainment:
The first-ever "Clash of the Classes"
Saturday, October 11, at Lewis & Clark College
- 5:30PM Elite Youth "Clash of the Classes" Game
- 7:30PM Elite HS "Clash of the Classes" Game
Both games will be played at Lewis & Clark College located at:
0615 SW Palatine Hill Road Portland, Oregon 97219.
Here's a partial list of players that will be there. It's basically a who's who of Oregon and Washington high school hoopsters:
Mike Moser, Max Jacobsen, Terrence Jones, Stephen Holt, Garrett Jackson, Jordan Railey, Kyle Wiltjer, Cameron McCaffery, Cody Hickey, Jordan Tebbutt, Abdul Gaddy, Peyton Siva, Cody Thurmond, Aaron Bright, Josh Smith, Cole Dickerson, Colton Christian.
The two young'uns to keep an eye on:
Arguably the top player in the country in the Class of 2011, Tony Wroten, Jr.
The nation's top eighth grader, Nigel Williams-Goss of Happy Valley.
I will also be on hand taking pictures and signing autographs watching the game. Can't wait to see this.
There's at least a 50 percent chance that Nigel gets called up to the Blazers if one more guard goes down with injury, so come take a look at your team's next floor general!
Support local hoops and make an appearance. Courtside always puts on a good show.
