Tournament of Champions features several ACC prospects

Posted May 28, 2010

The Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions kicks off Friday night across college and high school gyms in the triangle.

The annual tournament brings in talent from high school basketball teams across the country to compete over Memorial weekend and gives fans a chance to glimpse college and NBA prospects of the future.

Several area prospects are scattered throughout the teams. North Carolina signee P.J. Hairston from Greensboro (CP3) and UNC/Duke legacy big men Cody Zeller (Indiana Elite) and Marshall Plumlee (Indiana Elite) are some of the top seniors who will attend.

N.C. State fans can see their big man 6-foot-9, 2012 commit, Joseph Uchebo from Oak Ridge Academy, playing for the CP3 All-Stars.

Another notable CP3 All-Star is local Raleigh Upper Room stand-out Rodney Purvis. Purvis is only a rising sophomore but has been getting lots of interest as 2013’s top prospect, and has been compared to Raleigh’s John Wall.

Other players of interest are the number one small forward in the 2012 class, J.P. Tokoto (Wisconsin Playground Warriors), who has been offered by Duke and is receiving a lot of interest from UNC; class of 2012 small forward Shabazz Muhammad (Dream Vision) another interest of both UNC and Duke; class of 2011 point guard Quinn Cook who has all three area schools interested will suit up for the D.C. Assault.

Another highlight for UNC fans may be the fact that recent transfer Justin Knox will be in attendance as an assistant coach for Team Alabama.
