Portland, Oregon • April 11, 2009


The 2009 USA Junior National Select Team watched a nine-point lead slip away in the fourth quarter as the World Select Team rallied to outscore the USA by 17 points in the final stanza to capture a 97-89 win in the 12th annual Nike Hoop Summit on Saturday night in Portland, Ore.

Xavier Henry (Putnam City H.S. / Oklahoma City, Okla.) led all U.S. scorers with 22 points, including 6-of-11 shooting from 3-point, which tied the U.S. Hoop Summit individual game record for both 3-pointers made and attempted. Avery Bradley (Findlay Prep / Henderson, Nev.), who made 10-of-14 shots from the field, added 21 points, and John Wall (Word of God Academy / Raleigh, N.C.) finished with 13 points, a U.S. Hoop Summit game record 11 assists and tied the steals mark with five.

The 2009 Nike Hoop Summit was played in front of a nationally televised audience and record crowd of 11,246.

Led by 23 points from Serbian big man Milan Macvan (Hemofarm-Stada / Serbia) the World Team win ended a seven-game winning streak for the USA, which now holds a 9-3 advantage over its foreign opponents in the 12-game history of the event. Macvan also collected 14 rebounds to tie a World Team Hoop Summit record, including nine rebounds on the offensive glass.

Trailing 70-61, the World Team put the fourth quarter's first points on the board and then compiled a 13-5 run that cut the USA's advantage to 75-72 when Donatas Motiejunas (Aisciai Kaunas / Lithuania), who tallied 12 of his 21 points in the fourth period, capped the run with a three-point play.

Following a USA timeout, Henry knocked down one of his six 3-pointers at 6:05 and Bradley slammed home a fast-break dunk at 5:44 put the USA back up 80-74. From there, however, the USA struggled to score as the World Team closed the game with a 23-9 run to secure the win, which equaled its highest-ever margin of victory.

The USA was hurt by poor free throw shooting, making just 7-of-16 from the charity strip, and also badly lost the battle of the boards 48-29, giving up 25 offensive boards and 27 second-chance points.

A total of seven Hoop Summit records were tied or bettered. The international squad dished out a record 21 assists, while the U.S. team equaled its assists mark with 23.

The game's first three periods were fairly evenly matched, with the USA holding onto a 23-19 lead after the first period and a one-point, 42-41, advantage at halftime.

The USA reached a 10-point lead with 1:22 remaining in the third quarter when John Henson (Sickles H.S. / Tampa, Fla.), who tallied 10 points and nine rebounds -- six of those coming on the offensive end -- cleaned up a USA miss with a dunk that made the score 68-58. Tomislav Zubcic (Cibona / Croatia) responded with three points the old-fashioned way for the World Team, but after Wall countered with a slam with 11 seconds remaining the third stanza ended with the USA up 70-61.

Olive was assisted on the USA sideline by Antwan Harris (Washburn H.S. / Minneapolis, Minn. / Pulley Panthers AAU).
