KITCHENER, ON–It’s that time of the year again, the Adidas Tri-City Top 40 camp is back at Core Facility where a collection of Kitchener-Waterloo top underclassmen will compete against, and train with one another in a high intensity weekend of basketball. Canadian professional basketball player Imad Qahwash is back home from Spain to steer the ship as event director and skill development instructor for camp.
North Pole Hoops and Adidas Tri-City Top 40 are partnering up for the third consecutive year to provide maximum exposure on Canadian soil to an area of the country that is booming with raw talent. Between May 9-11 the prospects below will get very familiar with each other in a competitive atmosphere that will ripen their skill set an attitude toward development.
Jamal Murray remains the most notable player to come out of this regional camp. He is now being recruited by high-major NCAA programs, and you will continue hearing about this special talent out of Kitchener, Ontario.
Last year’s Tri-City MVP’s, Sasha Simic and Nedim Hodzic, made it undeniable that they were the top prospects in the gym through consistent production in games and relentless work ethic in drill work.
Simic and Hodzic went on to have strong high school seasons where Simic was a producer at the senior level for Cameron Heights and Hodzic showed a developed skill set and signature knack for rebounding with Sir John A. MacDonald.
Both prospects earned a spot into the annual North Pole Hoops Platform which brings together a selection of Canada’s top prospects.
Below is a list of the names at this year’s camp. Some familiar names to the scouting team at North Pole Hoops made their first impression during the regular high school season or at camp last year as ninth graders. Guys like Chris Jin, Adham Eleeda and Korbil Gany.
