Video: 2011 Nike Hoop Summit Game Mix

Sure, the USA Junior National team won handily over the World Select Team on Saturday night, 92-80. The USA was led by Austin Rivers (20 points), Anthony Davis (16, 10, 2 swats), Mike Gilchrist (16 points, 5 boards, 5 blocks), and Quinn Cook (12 points, 3 assists). But the big story was Bismack Biyombo of Congo. The 6-9, 240-pound power forward tallied 12 points, 11 rebounds and a record 10 blocks for the first triple-double in the game’s history. Biyombo was the clear standout on the World side, playing the beast in the paint and dunking on future lottery picks. The scary athletic Biyombo could be tantalizing teams come this summer’s Draft, as he’s still just 18. His triple-double boosted him to No. 7 in DraftExpress‘ Mock Draft.

    Mike Gilchrist much?

    Gotta say after watching the McD’s game and now the Hoop Summit. Mike Gilchrist is the #1 player in this class, Austin is a GREAT offensive player but Mike Gilchrist does it ALL, and is everywhere on the court.

    This may be hard to believe but UK is going to be better next season. With a class consisted of ADavis, Gilchrist, Teague and Wiltjer, a trip back to the final 4 and a chip is in sight.

    Wroten is the most underrated player in that class by far

    Michael Gilchrist has long been my #1 for this class, even when everyone else was starting to go with Rivers.
    And co-sign JTaylor.
    UK will be SCARY next year. The only kid I didn’t really know much about was Wiltjer, but after watching him in the McD’s game, I gotta say kid is legit too.

    @AllenP……you realize reporting yourself as older than you are doesn’t help at all in basketball recruitment right??

    Princeton, West Virginia, Ohio State, and North Carolina is a easy trip to the final four? Fact is, UK with Cal will be in the running for a championship every year! If the NBA changes the age limit, look out!
