Basketball Has Most Reps at California Event

BATON ROUGE – The 2015-16 LSU team has been making its mark all summer long in rankings and posted another on Friday when it had the most players (3) of any college at the 2015 adidas Global Nations event in Long Beach, California.

Representing LSU at the event is junior Tim Quarterman along with freshmen Antonio Blakeney and Ben Simmons.

The nation’s top young players are divided into seven geographical world regions for games. A multi-faceted international curriculum featuring NBA coaches and players, as well as current collegiate players acting as camp counselors, provides invaluable insight and first-hand knowledge to the participants, illustrating the pressures, rigors and challenges that accompany the rise of any aspiring NBA star.
