2017 USA Nike Hoop Summit Team

XX Annual Nike Hoop Summit -- 2017

Portland, Oregon • April 7, 2017


The 11-point, 98-87, win for the USA Junior National Select Team over the World Select Team in the 20th annual Nike Hoop Summit on April 7 at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, was closer than the final score indicated. In fact, with 2:43 remaining in the game the USA led by just four points.

Michael Porter Jr. (Nathan Hale H.S./Seattle, Wash.), who tied for the game’s leading scorer with 19 points and is headed to the University of Missouri in the fall, helped seal the win for the USA with six points, including two impressive slam dunks, in a 10-0 run that put the USA back on top 98-84 with 48.3 seconds left.
 
“First thing, the World Team gave us a heck of a game, and congrats to them,” said USA head coach Miles Simon (California Supreme). “They competed, and they gave us everything that we could handle.”
 
University of Kentucky-bound Jarred Vanderbilt (Victory Prep Academy/Houston, Texas) also scored 19 points to go with 10 rebounds and three assists. Michigan State University signee Jaren Jackson Jr. (La Lumiere School/Carmel, Ind.) had a 13-point, 10-rebound double-double, including seven offensive, and guard Collin Sexton (Pebblebrook H.S./Mableton, Ga.), who signed with the University of Alabama, finished with eight assists and four steals.
 
Overall, the USA outrebounded the World Team 45-27, while collecting an impressive 20 offensive boards as a team.
 
Eight U.S. players scored for the USA in the first quarter, but buoyed by four 3-pointers, the World Team hung close, and the USA led 25-20 after the period.
 
In the second quarter, the World Team tied the score three times before full-court pressure from the USA after a media timeout at 4:56 helped to disrupt the World Team and give the USA some momentum. The USA rallied to nine straight points and lead 46-37 at 3:51.
 
Germany’s Kostja Mushidi (BC Mega Leks, Serbia), who set a World Team Nike Hoop Summit record for 3-point makes and tied the mark for 3-point attempts (4-7 3pt), sank his third 3 to end the USA’s streak. Both teams scored twice more to bring the halftime score to 52-44 in the USA’s favor.
 
The USA rebounding advantage was consistent during the game and was 24-14 in the first half, which included 13 offensive boards that led to 16 second-chance points. At the midway point, the USA also had nine steals and 13 turnovers out of the World Team.
 
The USA’s shooting percentage fell to 31.8 percent in the third quarter (7-22 FGs), which helped the World Team cut into the USA’s lead. After the USA went ahead by as many as 11 points twice in the third period, the World Team outscored the USA 14-9 to head into the fourth period trailing 73-67.
 
The World Team scored first in the fourth quarter to make it 73-69, and while the international squad cut the gap to four points twice more, that was as close as they would come to the USA. Each time they threatened, the USA had an answer. Tallying eight assists on 11 made baskets in the final 10 minutes, the USA was a red-hot 61.1 percent from the field (11-18 FGs) during the fourth period.
 
The World Team also was hurt by poor free throw shooting, making just 6-of-15 (.400) in the fourth and 18-of-33 (.545) overall.
 
Jackson’s and Vanderbilt’s 10 rebounds tied the U.S. Nike Hoop Summit record, while the team tied the mark for assists with 23.
 
Mushidi led the World Team with 14 points, and Lindell Wigginton (Oak Hill Academy, Va./Canada) had seven assists.
 
USA guard Quade Green (Neumann-Goretti H.S./Philadelphia, Pa.) was unable to play due to previous injury.
 
USA Basketball teams have compiled a 14-6 overall advantage all-time in the Nike Hoop Summit and 4-3 versus the World squad in the past seven games.
