Uncommitted R.J. Barrett, Kansas-bound Devon Dotson will highlight American high school trip to China
Uncommitted senior guard R.J. Barrett of Montverde (FL) Academy and Kansas-bound point guard Devon Dotson of Providence Day (N.C.) highlight a group of American high school players who will travel to China to compete next month in the US/China World Basketball Spectacular.
Montverde Academy and Providence Day will be joined by a third American team, Chaminade (CA) College Prepatory Academy. They will play in a round robin format against several Chinese teams Dec. 6-9 at the Olympic Training Center. A specific game schedule has yet to be released.
The trip was first reported by the Charlotte Observer and confirmed by multiple sources, who are not yet authorized to speak publicly because the event hasn’t been officially announced by the event’s sponsor, Camsing Global, which is covering costs for the American teams.
As part of the overall trip which runs Dec. 2-21, the teams will take in cultural events at Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall.
