ESPN RISE today unveiled the first 12 of 24 roster spots for next month's Boost Mobile Elite 24 event, one of the nation's premier summer showcases, at the famed outdoor courts of Venice Beach, Calif.
As usual, New England prep school talent has found its way into the event. This year, that's Chesterton, Ind. native and Brewster Academy senior forward Mitch McGary, the nation's No. 4 overall player in the Class of 2012 according to ESPN's latest rankings.
McGary is the second Bobcat in three years to play in the event, joining incoming Memphis sophomore guard Will Barton from back in 2009. St. Mark's forward Alex Murphy, an incoming freshman at Duke, played in last year's event.
The slam dunk competition will air on Friday, August 26 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU. The game will be broadcast the following night at 7 on ESPNU.
