Quentin Grimes Named to the 2018 USA Nike Hoop Summit Team

  • Date:
    Mar 26, 2018

A 6-foot-4 guard out of College Park High School in The Woodlands, Texas, Quentin Grimes today was named to the 2018 USA Junior National Select Team that will take on the World Select Team in the 21st annual Nike Hoop Summit at 7 p.m. (PDT) on Friday, April 13, at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

Additionally, Anfernee Simons (IMG Academy/Altamonte Springs, Fla.), who previously was named to the team, no longer will be participating as he prepares for the 2018 NBA Draft.

In his senior season at College Park in 2017-18, Grimes averaged 29.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game to help his team to a 21-13 record, a District 12-6A title and an appearance in the Texas University Interscholastic League area finals.

“I am truly blessed and honored to be selected to play in the Nike Hoop Summit,” Grimes said. “It is a great opportunity to be able to go out there and represent my country and try and get a win against the World Team.”

The Nike Hoop Summit is an annual basketball game that pits the best U.S. high school senior boys against top international players from around the world who are 19 years old or younger in a one-game showdown.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com, the Rose Quarter Box Office or by calling 800-745-3000. Courtside seats are $50 and $75, while lower bowl seating starts at $10. Applicable service charges apply.

The 2018 USA Junior National Select Team also features: Darius Bazley (Princeton H.S./Cincinnati, Ohio); Bol Bol (Findlay College Prep, Nev./Olathe, Kan.); Darius Garland (Brentwood Academy/Brentwood, Tenn.); Tyler Herro (Whitnall H.S./Greenfield, Wis.); Keldon Johnson (Oak Hill Academy/Sterling, Va.); Tre Jones (Apple Valley H.S./Apple Valley, Minn.); Romeo Langford (New Albany H.S./New Albany, Ind.); David McCormack (Oak Hill Academy/Norfolk, Va.); Cameron Reddish (Westtown School/Norristown, Pa.); and Zion Williamson (Spartanburg Day School/Spartanburg, S.C.).

Additionally, Louis King (Hudson Catholic H.S./Columbus, N.J.) will attend the 2018 Nike Hoop Summit as a member of the U.S. team but is unable to participate due to injury.

The USA will be led by DeMatha Catholic High School (Md.) head coach Mike Jones, with Herman Harried of Lake Clifton High School in Baltimore serving as the USA’s assistant coach.

The 2018 World Select Team roster, which is expected to be announced in late March, will include top players from FIBA Africa, FIBA Americas, FIBA Asia and FIBA Europe, with the approved sanctioning of FIBA, the governing body of international basketball.

USA Basketball teams, winners of the past two Nike Hoop Summits, have compiled a 14-6 overall advantage all-time in the Nike Hoop Summit.

An incredible 203 former members of the USA or World Select Team have been drafted by NBA teams, including 13 players in the 2017 NBA Draft. And, as of Dec. 12, 2017, a remarkable 72 former U.S. players and 33 former World team members were active in the NBA. Additionally, 36 former Hoop Summit players are currently competing on the collegiate level, including 23 U.S. players and 13 World Team athletes.

The USA Basketball Men’s Developmental National Team Committee is responsible for selecting U.S. players and coaches for the Nike Hoop Summit.
