John Wall and Lance Stephenson lead the rosters for the third annual Elite 24 Boost Mobile Classic, the premier high school basketball event.
Wall, Rivals.com's top-ranked high school basketball player, leads "Skip to My Lou" Blue Squad, along with two other No. 1 players in the nation as Tony Wroten, Jr. and LaQuinton Ross split the No. 1 ranking in the sophomore class of 2011 on several recruiting services.
Kenny Boynton and Derrick Favors, two top-ten seniors, also join Wall, Wroten and Ross on the "Skip to My Lou" Blue Squad, named after playground legend and Houston Rockets point guard Rafer Alston.
Stephenson, the much-hyped guard from Brooklyn's Lincoln High School, becomes the only player to play in the classic in every year of its existense. Stephenson leads "The Goat" White Squad with the nation's top junior Jeremy Tyler, Dexter Strickland, Mike Gilchrist and Abdul Gaddy.
Despite the summer tournaments sponsored by Nike, Reebok and adidas, the Elite 24 Boost Mobile Classic brings arguably the best 24 high school players in the nation each summer, regardless of their shoe affiliation.
The Elite 24 Boost Mobile Classic will be held on Friday, Aug. 22 at Harlem's famed Rucker Park. The game will broadcasted live on ESPNU at 8 p.m. and will be re-broadcasted Monday, August 25 at midnight on ESPN2.
Chauncey Billups and former NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson will coach in the game. Over the last two years, Michael Beasley, Kevin Love, Jerryd Bayless, Brandon Jennings, Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans played in the game.
