    WASHINGTON — The 2013 Nike Global Challenge didn’t quite match the 2012 version in terms of overall talent.

    There was no future No. 1 draft pick like Andrew Wiggins and no flurry of Kentucky commits headed to arguably the greatest recruiting class in history.

    “There’s no Wiggins, there’s no Jabari Parker. There’s some nice kids who have a chance to be good college-level players,” one veteran scout in attendance told SheridanHoops.com. “That being said, there’s always a couple kids who will come on and surprise you.”

    A slew of NBA scouts and big-time college coaches attended the three-day event, including Kentucky’s John Calipari, Louisville’s Rick Pitino, Kansas’ Bill Self, North Carolina’s Roy Williams, Indiana’s Tom Crean, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Michigan’s John Beilein.
