Under Armour Basketball announced it is bringing the UA Elite 24 - the nation's premier high school basketball showcase - back to Brooklyn, NY for the second consecutive year.
The nation's top high school basketball players will assemble on August 23 at Pier 2 of the Brooklyn Bridge Park to make a name for themselves in New York City-the Mecca of basketball. The game will air live on ESPNU at 7PM ET.
Since its founding, 40 players from the game went on to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft, 24 were selected in the Lottery, and three went on to be drafted number one overall. This year's game again features some of the most promising young basketball players in the world.
The event also features a Dunk contest, Skills contest and Three-Point contest that will take place on Friday, August 22. Friday night action will be carried live on ESPN3 and will re-air on ESPNU on Saturday, August 23 at noon ET.
For the first time in the game's history an UA NEXT "Rising Stars" game has been added to the weekend showcase. The best middle school-aged basketball players from the Tri-State area will square off on Saturday at 5PM ET.
The top 24 players in the country selected to play in the 2014 Under Armour Basketball Elite 24 are listed below.
