Under Armour HSS Preview

Charlotte recently hosted the Wild Wings Café event to end the 2013 calendar year, and now the Queen City will host the event formerly known as the Brandon Jennings Invitational.

Where: Charlotte, N.C., Berry Academy

When: January 11, 2014

Reporting Staff: Rob Harrington

Top Players: Emmanuel Mudiay, Terrance Ferguson, Theo Pinson, Goodluck Okonoboh, Karl Towns, Wade Baldwin, Max Hoetzel, Curtis Cobb, Donte Grantham, Isaiah Manderson, Tre Campbell, James Palmer, Samir Doughty, James Demery, Keyshawn Woods, Dominique Collier, Ronnie Harrell.

Looking forward to: Saturday's finale will feature Prime Prep (Mudiay) versus Wesleyan Christian (Pinson). Though not at the same position, I hope the two prep All-Americans will match up. Meanwhile, the best head to head battle may be Okonoboh versus Towns. I watched Okonoboh struggle versus Thon Maker last month, so I'm curious if he performs more effectively against the Kentucky-bound Towns.

Elsewhere, I'm excited to watch Creighton signee Harrell for the first time since last July. I'm also curious if Doughty can build on his showing at last summer's Reebok Breakout Classic. There are various lower high-majors in attendance, too, and some of those guys will enter (or exit) our ultimately conversations about final rankings.
