U.S. preps face world in Portland

    With an emphasis on fundamentals and an eye on international play, Nike reorganized its summer camps for elite high school basketball players this year.

    And the culmination of the shoe giant’s efforts will be on display during the inaugural Nike Global Challenge on July 29-31 at the University of Portland.

    Four U.S. teams — assembled from players who attended Nike-sponsored skills camps — and under-19 teams from Canada, China, Puerto Rico and Senegal will play in the eight-team tournament. International rules will apply.
