Chicago Classic

Where:: Deerfield, Illinois

When: May 24-26

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Teams: Memphis Magic, Indiana Elite, Michigan Mustangs, Eric Gordon All-Stars, Florida Elite, Colorado Hawks, Wisconsin Running Rebels, REACH Legends, Minnesota D1, Wisconsin Playground Warriors

Top Players: Eron Gordon, De'Ron Davis, Austin Conway, Brandone Francis, Kelan Martin, Nick Noskowiak, Kevon Looney, Justin Tillman, J.P. Macura, Henry Ellenson, Sean O'Mara

Looking Forward To: This is a very solid event featuring some top talent mostly from the Midwest, but also across the country. Kevon Looney will look to continue his big time summer, and it will be interesting to see how he does again against top competition.

Also how will point guard Austin Conway look. Conway might be the fastest player in the country baseline-to-baseline, now the question is how refined is his decision making. Also his teammate, De'Ron Davis, will he look like one of the elite players in the 2016 class.

Overall there will be a lot on display in the Chicago suburbs, and several players are sure to emerge with their talent and some intriguing individual matchups could take place.
