Prep Stars Hit New Haven
A 23-team field -- including all of the top 10 schools in the country according to the national prep poll -- will be on-hand.
Of particular interest to UConn fans will be the presence of Wilbraham & Monson Academy, which features 7-foot-1 center Enosch Wolf, who'll be a Husky come mid-December. Wilbraham & Monson face Tilton School on Sunday at 5 p.m. Tilton features a UConn target, Nerlens Noel, who is also being sought by Duke, Providence and Washington, among others.
And Andre Drummond will be there, too. Drummond's St. Thomas More School plays Lee Academy on Friday at 5:15 p.m. and Princeton Day on Saturday at 10:45 a.m.
