August 24th, 2013| by John Talty
Two of Mississippi’s best will see how they fare against the nation’s best tonight at the Under Armour Elite 24 game in Brooklyn. The game will be televised live at 6 p.m. CST on ESPNU.
Moss Point senior Devin Booker and Callaway junior Malik Newman were two of 24 players selected from around the country to participate in the game.
Booker, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound shooting guard, will play on Team Coney Island, coached by actor Michael Rapaport and former NBA player Mario Elie. He’ll be joined by highly touted players such as Theo Pinson and Emmanuel Mudiay, who will announce his decision during the game.
The trip to New York has already been a good one for Booker. He won the game’s three-point shooting contest Friday night.
Booker recently announced that he’ll be taking official visits to Michigan State, Kentucky, Michigan and Missouri, in that order.
Newman will play on the opposing team, Team Bed-Stuy. He’ll be coached by Lloyd “Sweet Pea” Daniels and Pearl Washington.
The nation’s top-ranked prospect in the class of 2015 has had a huge summer, impressing at camps and tournaments around the country.
>>>Doesn't sound like Booker is still interested but some might want to watch.
