When the Nike Hoop Summit begins tonight, some of the best young players in the world will take the court as Team USA goes up against the World Team. The University of Kentucky has a total of four future Wildcats participating in tonight’s game. For the Team USA, future Cats Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison and Julius Randle all take the floor. For the World Team, class of 2014 Wildcat commit, Karl Towns Jr. takes the floor.
Not that having four future Wildcats playing in the game is not reason enough to tune in and watch, but the number one player in the nation and UK recruit, Andrew Wiggins will be playing on the World Team. Wiggins, as most of you know, has yet to decide where he will be attending college and his decision should be revealed in the coming weeks. Wiggins has narrowed his decision down to Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State.
The game is played in the Portland Trailblazers home court, the Rose Garden, and will tip off at 7 p.m. EST. The game will be televised on ESPN2, so tune in to watch some future Cats strut their stuff, while one potential future Cat does the same.
