Jordan Brand Classic This Saturday

Jordan Brand Classic This Saturday

The Jordan Brand Classic is just around the corner on Saturday, April 18, 2009, at Madison Square Garden in New York City. We previously reported the national and regional lineups. Here are the rosters for two international teams which play in the first game at 3:30 p.m.

Most of the players on the international teams come from the Jordan Brand's two-day training camp with 40 of the top prospects in the world during March 2009 in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Ten (10) young men from this camp, along with six players from other regions of the world, were selected to participate in Saturday's game.

Following the opening contest, the tripleheader continues with the Regional Game at 5:30 p.m. and the All-American Game at 8:00 p.m.
