    Andre Cornelius played in the Capital Classic didn’t he? Being from North Carolina he’d have to be on the USA side right?

    Yeah. He had 13 points and 8 assists and 4 steals in the game.

    I believe I read somewhere that Lew Howard is coaching the Capitol All Star team (Polite's coach at Oxon Hill).

    I think Paris Bennett played in the Capital Classic. I thought Sammy Hernandez did as well. Or, was it Otis Birdsong?
    The year the game was at EBA, we had someone on the national team. I can't remember what year it was or who it was. I am old

    Could be right about Bennett, he came from that PVI-type place with all the talent...gonna have to do some research on historic rosters...

    Capital classic is cool. Went with @MasonFanatic a few weeks before I moved out of northern va.
    Off the top of my head I saw goanar mar (obviously the main draw) Luke Garza, Deion Hammond, Chris lykes. It’s a glorified all star game, but it’s a very cool honor to have kolek and polite play. Various high major and mid major players get the honor.

    I remember mar had a nice block in transition and maybe a three pointer.

    It took me a second to get your response since I haven't heard that name in years...maybe decades. I think I have his rookie card with the Kansas City Kings. Yes, I'm old... :old:
