Viewing: Malik Newman

The World Team hung on for a 103-101 victory over the USA Junior National Select Team at the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Oregon, on April 11.

Trailing by as many as 14 points in the first half, the USA fought its way back to a three-point lead in the fourth quarter but could not contain the World Team’s Jamal Murray, who led the international squad to a 103-101 win with 30 points in the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit.

When Malik Newman takes the floor for the USA in the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit on April 11 in Portland, Oregon, he not only will be surrounded by 10 USA Basketball gold medalists for teammates, he likely will be the most decorated player on the floor – for either the U.S. or the World Select Team.

Featuring 10 players who won gold medals with USA Basketball in 2014, the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s Junior National Select Team that will take on the World Select Team in the 18th Nike Hoop Summit will be the most-experienced U.S. roster ever fielded for the event.
