2011 Nike Hoop Summit: Tickets And Coverage


It's that time of year again. The Nike Hoop Summit -- an international high school basketball showcase -- is hitting the Rose Garden tomorrow night at 7 PM. For years now, this has been one of my favorite events. If you're interested in attending, you can order tickets online right here. I've been out at practices this week -- mostly watching -- but I am putting together some coverage for SB Nation. Here's a link to everything that's up so far. Hit that link and you'll find full roster information near the bottom. Team USA features nine McDonald's All-Americans, headlined by Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers, Michael Gilchrist and James McAdoo. I interviewed McAdoo last night and he was very, very funny. Give that a read if you get the chance. The World team has at least four possible future NBA draft picks in Bismack Biyombo (Congo), Lucas "Bebe" Nogueira (Brazil), Davis Bertans (Latvia) and Jesuit's Kyle Wiltjer. Also, promising Gonzaga recruit Kevin Pangos (Canada). Tim Brown and the folks over at have plenty of excellent coverage as always. Eric King at Beyond The Beat chats with Biyombo and Nogueira plus Anthony Davis and Tony Wroten, Jr. -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
