Boys basketball showcase in Lansdowne

September 06, 2012|Baltimore Sun staff

New Town assistant coach Tony Biggers, trainer Ferron Carter and analyst Edgar Walker are teaming up to host a boys basketball showcase Friday and Saturday at Leadership Through Athletics in Lansdowne.

On Friday, there will be discussion on recruiting, including tips on social media, NCAA academic standards and more. On Saturday, players will be measured and tested before going through several drills and then scrimmaging in front of several Division II and III coaches.

"What we're trying to do is offer an organized, high-level event for the local basketball community," Walker said in an email. "More than anything, it's an opportunity. Players can gain exposure to college coaches and media outlets, they can see where they stack up against some of the top competition in the state, and they can use it as a high-intensity workout to brush up on their fundamentals and understanding of the game.

"While the focus of this showcase was to offer Maryland and D.C. area players a good platform for exposure and experience, we have also attracted players from Virginia and New Jersey. We will have three groups of 40 players each. While many camps have no limit and attract huge numbers of players, the idea of having only 40 players per group will make sure that each player can get the most out of their time at the event and can get as much exposure as possible."Contact Carter at or Walker at with questions.
