L.J. Rose to play in Las Vegas Live
The Las Vegas LIVE tournament will feature some of the country’s top players. The event, held July 22-26, is run by Hal Pastner’s Big Foot Hoops and its headquarters is Durango High. The Las Vegas LIVE tournament will be held at top gyms such as Durango, Spring Valley, Bonanza High, Palo Verde High, Sierra Vista High, City of Las Vegas Gyms, Doolittle Center and the Tarkanian Basketball Academy.
The Houston Hoops AAU program may the country’s top trio of backcourt players in L.J. Rose, Duke commit Rasheed Sulaimon and J-Mychal Reese, all seniors-to-be. Six-foot-7, 240-pound forward Brian Bridgewater is one of the top players in the Class of 2013.
James Thompson, a 6-foot-9 big man from the Class of 2014 from Parkview Baptist who plays for the Louisiana Future, is an under-the-radar player now, but that will likely change this week.
