Cancer Research Classic Preview

A loaded two days of hoops are set at the Cancer Research Classic in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Where: Wheeling, West Virginia

When: January 3-4, 2014

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Players: Emmanuel Mudiay, Jahlil Okafor, D.J. Williams, Jaylen Brown, Daniel Giddens, D'Angelo Russell, Justin Bibbs, Ben Simmons, Carlton Bragg, Chase Jeter, Stephen Zimmerman, Ja'Quan Newton

Looking forward to: The Cancer Research Classic is one of the top events in the entire country and features some top players and interesting matchups. One of the more interesting games to watch will be when Bragg takes on Jeter and Zimmerman. Bragg is a hybrid forward with athleticism and developing skill, and how will he do against the elite frontline that Gorman runs out with two 7-footers. Also Wheeler against Montverde will be very interesting.

Giddens has a chance to prove his worth against potential No. 1 class of 2015 prospect Ben Simmons. Also how will Jaylen Brown do against those top notch Montverde wings including Virginia Tech bound Justin Bibbs.

Overall thre will be a lot to watch with elite players in all classes at every position going at each other, and should make for two very exciting days of basketball.
