This weekend, South London will be hosting a one-day showcase of the top junior basketball talent in the UK - and The Last Pick will be there LIVE all day!
Organised by Hoopsfix.com, the UK’s largest basketball website, it aims to showcase the future stars of Great Britain by placing 44 of the best under-19s in the country in two exhibition games against each other; one featuring players in their last year in the UK before primarily departing for scholarships in the US, and the other featuring Underclassmen – players with at least one more in the UK.
“We’re so happy to be bringing back the event after a year hiatus,” Hoopsfix.com founder Sam Neter said.
“The Hoopsfix All-Star Classic serves as not only a bringing together of the top junior talent in the country, but the entire community. I’m personally excited to see the level of talent that will be on display, and look forward to showcasing the stars of tomorrow.”
Thirteen of the 22 players competing in the Class of 2018 game have already signed athletic scholarships in the US, with others expected to sign in the coming weeks, meanwhile, 27 of the 44 players feature have represented their country internationally at a junior European Championships; testament to the level of talent on display.
