Earlier this month I blogged about the Nike Global Challenge. The Top 30 American high school basketball players will play the best international players (19 and under) in a 12-team tournament from August 6-8. The Nike Global Challenge will be played at Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Ore. and Heights forward Perry Ellis will play representing the U.S.
Ellis’ team has been selected for the Global Challenge. Here is the roster. As you can see Ellis is the only class of 2012 player on the team.
