HOOP SUMMIT LOGO

Started in 1995, tonight’s Nike Hoop Summit will be the 20th matchup between the World Select Team and the USA Junior Select Team. The US leads the all-time series 12-7, but have lost three out of the last five.

The Hoop Summit pits America’s top high school seniors against the best basketball players from around the world who are 19 years old or younger. The past seven #1 overall NBA Draft picks have played in the Nike Hoop Summit.

Over 20 NBA All-Stars, including Kevin Garnett (15x All-Star), Dirk Nowitzki (13x All-Star), Kevin Durant (8x All-Star), Joe Jackson (7x All-Star), Tony Parker (6x All-Star), Anthony Davis (4x All-Star) and Kyrie Irving (4x All-Star) have taken the court at the Hoop Summit.

Tonight’s event is no different with Michael Porter Jr., Mohamed Bamba, Troy Brown, Wendell Carter Jr., Trevon Duval, Kevin Knox II, and Collin Sexton all projected by DraftExpress to be selected in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The SEC has six players between the two rosters, dominated by Kentucky’s foursome of Quade GreenJarred VanderbiltShai Gilgeous-Alexander and Nick Richards. Alabama bound Collin Sexton and Missouri bound Michael Porter Jr round out the SEC commits.
