by January 11, 2013



Under Armour Basketball will host the 3rd annual Brandon Jennings Invitational on January 12 at Brookfield Central High School in Brookfield, WI. This year’s event features ten of the nation’s top high school basketball teams representing nine different states. Past participants in the inaugural Brandon Jennings Invitational include New Orleans Hornets, Austin Rivers, Glen Robinson III, Michigan and JP Tokoto, North Carolina. For the third consecutive year, SLAM is excited to have produced the official program for the Brandon Jennings Invitational, and will once again be providing complete coverage of the event on Sunday, so make sure to check in. For those of you who unfortunately won’t be able to attend the games, we figured why not share with our readers the aforementioned dope program cover that those in attendance will receive (above). You can catch all the games online as each will stream live on facebook.com/uabasketball and http://thebasketballchannel.net/videos/brandon-jennings-invitational/.
