The Triad Pro-Am Summer League, one of our favorite events of the year to cover, kicks off in less than two weeks at Forsyth Country Day School. For Wake Forest fans, this year should be especially interesting, as it will be the first time anyone gets to see the seven player recruiting class take the court as Demon Deacons. Click through for all the details, including the roster pairings for this year!
In case you haven't been able to make it to the league before, here are a few of the basics:
- The event takes place at Forsyth Country Day School in Lewisville, NC.
- Admission and parking are free and there will be concessions available for purchase.
- Games will be played on Monday & Thursday from July 16th - August 1st. The playoffs will be held August 3rd & 4th.
- Each day of the "regular season" features three games starting at roughly 6:30, 7:30 & 8:30. All teams play each night.
If you have attended the games before, there are a few changes this year. Most importantly, there are only six teams. This is helpful because it keeps all the games in the main gym and puts more talent on each team, which should raise the competitiveness of the league.
From a Wake Forest perspective, the players on the 2012-2013 roster are divided onto three of the teams as follows:
Grace, Tisdale & Clifton, P.A: Arnaud Moto, CJ Harris & Devin Thomas
As usual, Elliot Pishko Morgan PA and Silver Edge Gear will be the team to beat, as it features several players with D-1 and Euro experience including Travis and Whit Holcomb-Faye, Chris Oliver, Walt Baxley and former Demon Deacons Chas McFarland and David Weaver. Also don't be surprised if other past Deacs or familiar names make appearances throughout the next month. In the past, CP3, Jarrett Jack, Reyshawn Terry and several others have stopped by for a game or two.
Stay tuned to BSD throughout the summer league, as we plan to provide plenty of video, interviews, stats and write-ups. The league is under the direction of Kishon Bishop this year and we all look forward to making it better than ever before.
