  • BROOKVILLE, N.Y. — Javin DeLaurier is looking to cut his list in late July or early August.

    “I’m open right now,” the 6-foot-9 power forward from Charlottesville (Va.) St. Anne’s-Belfield and Team Loaded told SNY.tv this week at the adidas Uprising All-American Camp. “I think after the last live period I’m going to sit down with my family and make some decisions.

    “Maybe [cut to] five [schools], but absolutely a more manageable number.”

    DeLaurier said Texas, Vanderbilt, Princeton and Virginia Tech are “all showing a lot of love and communicating with me.”

    CHICAGO– Malik Monk was named to the U.S. All-Tournament Team at the 2014 Nike Global Challenge. This year, apparently, he didn’t think that was good enough.

    Monk was named Tournament MVP Saturday after his USA South team beat USA West 120-109 to win the Nike Global Challenge. He finished a phenomenal run at the tournament with a 22-point, 13-rebound and four-assist effort in the final, while playing 39 of the game’s 40 minutes. The Bentonville, Ark. Native is entering his senior season this fall.

    “Yeah, I feel comfortable playing with and without the ball,” Monk said of his guard skillset after the game. He said he wants to develop skills as both a shooting guard and point guard moving forward.
