Last year, the Nike Hoop Summit resumed its annual activity after a two-year hiatus. The 2022 Nike Hoop Summit featured the top three men’s high school senior prospects. University of Arkansas Nick Smith Jr. and Duke University’s Dariq Whitehead and Dereck Lively II showcased why they were selected by these prestigious schools with impeccable athleticism. Meanwhile, Villanova University prospect Cam Whitmore scored a whopping 19 points. He helped the USA secure that 102-89 victory against the World Team, led by Jean Montero, a former New York Knicks 2022 Summer League player.
This 2023, the Nike Hoop Summit continues the tradition and also launches the women's division. USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley expressed his excitement about introducing new opportunities. “The Nike Hoop Summit has been a great event to showcase the USA’s top talent against the World’s top talent annually. With the addition of a women’s game, there is another opportunity for our top women’s players to compete on an international stage. USA Basketball appreciates Nike’s continued partnership and support of the women’s and men’s junior national team programs.”
