Scout.com will be on hand for the NY2LA Swish N Dish. A loaded field will get the AAU circuit kicked off in a big way, and players such as Cliff Alexander will be primed to show their growth from the high school season.

NY2LA Swish N Dish

Where: Mequon, Wisconsin

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Teams: Mac Irvin Fire, Meanstreets, Illinois Wolves, Wisconsin Playground Warriors, All-Ohio Red, St. Louis Eagles, REACH Legends, Iowa Barnstormers, TP Elite, Playground Elite, Team NLP, Peoria Irish, D-Rose All-Stars, Ray Allen Select, Wisconsin Swing.

Top Players: Jahlil Okafor, Paul White, Charles Matthews, Keita Bates-Diop, Jae’Sean Tate, Jalen Brunson, Cliff Alexander, Justin Tillman, Jordan Barnett, Larry Austin, L.J. Peak, Jordan Ash, Vic Law, Michael Finke

Looking Forward To: This is always one of the best events of April because of the bracket play setup which means every game at the event matters and every game has intensity. It is a Chicago heavy event, and the thought of Okafor and Alexander matching up is of course very intriguing. Also will some of the other kids from the Windy City like Law, Peak, and Matthews continue to show up after strong high school season.

Beyond that two Ohio State commitments could go against each other with Bates-Diop and Tate, and then the young talent on the REACH Legends squad could come to the forefront. Along with them the development of point guards like Austin and Brunson will be intriguing to see, and good things are being said about the young talent in the state of Wisconsin, and they will all be on display.

With kids ready to get back into the swing of things on the circuit it should be a fun weekend with a lot of top players, and prospects eager to emerge.
