Watch Recruits Live…Watch Recruits From Your Couch Weekend

UK recruiting fans will have plenty to watch this weekend, with the Derby Festival Classic in Louisville and the USA Nike Hoops Summit taking place in Portland, Oregon. Stacey Poole will be playing in the Derby Festival Classic and Matt’s earlier post (or this link)will help you if you need to get tickets. If you’re not into leaving the house this weekend, depending on what you spend on cable currently, you can still catch a few UK recruits, plus  UK commit Enes Kanter, in action on television this weekend.

The Nike Hoops Summit will feature Kanter on the World Select Team, along with Canadian Cory Joseph, while the USA team will have Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones. In Cincinnati, on Directv, I’m getting the broadcast on channels 646, 659, 660, 661 and 663, which is most of the Fox Sports channels, so if you have almost any of the Fox Sports channels you should be able to see the game. Tip off is set for 7pm in Oregon so we’re getting the game on the east coast at 10pm. Personally, I can’t wait to see Kanter in live action against Jared Sullinger. It’s probably going to be your best opportunity to truly gauge where Kanter sits in reference to the nation’s best centers.

Here’s the rosters for each team and links for the more information:

I enjoy basketball, Kentucky sports and extremely short walks on the beach, followed by a nap. Sorry ladies, I'm taken.
