Rosters for Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge announced

Here are rosters for the fifth annual Dave Telep Carolinas Challenge to be held March 26 at Raleigh Ravenscroft.

It brings together 80 of the state's best basketball players who are in 9th, 10th and 11th grade.


Players will be divided into eight teams of 10 players each for scrimmages, and will also attend skill sessions conducted by Denny Kuiper, a former Michigan high school coach and academic advisor for the Marquette University basketball program. Alan Stein,  the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the DeMatha Catholic High School boys basketball program, will be the featured speaker.

Last year more than 30 media members covered the event and the participants were showcased in front of multiple voters for the McDonald’s All-American team as well as other state and national awards.

Previous Carolina Challenge participants include six McDonald’s All-Americans, six Jordan Brand Classic participants, more than 20 NBPA Top 100 Camp attendees, and the top pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Dave Telep is a Senior Basketball Recruiting Analyst for ESPN, and his college basketball scouting service is used by more than 225 colleges and numerous NBA teams.

Matt Madigan from Pfafftown might be the best pure shooter there.
