Athletes In Action (AIA) NCAA All-Stars Get Unique Opportunity

Michael Hickey

A group of Division I All-Stars will get a unique opportunity to hone their skills this summer in the Philippines.

Foreign tours have become the norm in college basketball.  The chance to head overseas (or to Canada) give a college coaches a unique opportunity to build chemistry, get an early look at their roster, and have some invaluable practice time before the beginning of the season.  A group of Division I All-Stars will get a different sort of unique experience this summer when they head to the Philippines to play under the banner of Athletes in Action.

Morris Michalski, who is best known for being the Team USA basketball chaplain and a spiritual advisor for the likes of Kevin Durant and Aaron Craft, will be the captain for the All-Star squad.  The team will play at least eight games against professional teams in the Philippines from July 24 to August 4.

The roster will tentatively include 13 Division I players including:

Traevon Jackson, Wisconsin
Sam Dekker, Wisconsin
Lotanna Nwogbo, Longwood
Quincy Taylor, Longwood
Kellen Dunham, Butler
Toddrick Gotcher, Texas Tech
Alex Caruso, Texas A&M
Jerome Hill, Gardner-Webb
Demonte Flannigan, Cleveland State
Aaron Scales, Cleveland State
Michael Bradley, Samford
Jordan Sibert, Dayton
Keaton Miles, Arkansas

On some levels it gives particular players a unique opportunity to hone their skills against professional competition, while others, like Longwood's duo of Nwogbo and Taylor, will go in looking to knock off some rust after redshirting last season.  All in all, these players should have a leg up as they head into the 2014-15 season.
