The 12th annual Nike Hoops Summit will take place on April 11th at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR for the second year in a row. The game will match up some of the elite high school ball players in the USA against the top international prospect under the age of 19. This all-star game is very unique in the fact the players will be playing as representatives for the home countries. The game will tip off at 7 p.m. (PDT).

North Carolina vs. Duke is the number one rivalry in college sports and it takes place tonight at “Cameron Indoor Stadium”. This is a huge night for recruits to be on campus to watch one of the biggest games of the season.
Duke has a few players coming on campus who have already verbally committed to play in “Cameron Indoor Stadium” which are Josh Hairston (Courtland, VA) and Tyler Thornton (Gonzaga, DC) of the class of 2010.
About Kris Kachelmeyer
Kris Kachelmeyer-Duke University Ugroup manager
I graduated from Westfield State College in Massachusetts in 2001. In 2002 I began my basketball coaching career at the high school level and in 2004, returned to Westfield State to join the coaching staff there where we have been fairly successful year in and year out. Although I coach at the D3 level, my true obsession lies within the Duke University basketball program which I have been following with great loyalty since the 1989 season.
