TWELVE(Now 13) GREENSBORO-AREA STUDENTS INVITED TO ELITE HOOPS EVENT
*****We have received word that Michael Neal, guard/Northern Guilford, has been added to the list of invitees.*****
CARY – Twelve Greensboro-area students have been invited to participate in Dave Telep’s Carolina Challenge, to be held Saturday, March 28 at Cary Academy.
In its third year, the Carolina Challenge has rapidly become the signature event for the state’s top players. Only the best freshmen, sophomores and juniors have been chosen for this invitation only, one-day academy that not only showcases the talent in the state, but also emphasizes what it means and takes to become a college basketball player.
Players will be divided into eight teams of 10 players each for scrimmages, and will also attend skill sessions conducted by Denny Kuiper, a former high school coach from the state of Michigan and an academic advisor for the Marquette University basketball program.
Last year more than 20 media members covered the event and the participants were showcased in front of multiple voters for the McDonald’s All-American team as well as other state and national awards.
