Nine Duke targets invited to USA Festival

Two Duke commitments and seven potential Duke targets were invited to participate in the 2004 USA Festival in Colorado Springs at the US Olympic Training Center. Of the 48 players that were invited to participate-- 41 are rising seniors and seven are rising juniors.

Among those invited are Greg Paulus, the sharp 6-foot-2 PG from Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, NY and 6-foot-10 crafty PF Josh McRoberts from Carmel High in Indiana.

Both juniors have already verbally committed to Duke and will enter their senior season as strong candidates for the McDonalds All American Game. A solid showing at the USA Festival would certainly boost their status for the prestigious honor.
