The NCAA announced the list of rising sophomores, juniors and seniors who will attend the College Basketball Academies Midwest Regional in 2019. These events were developed in response to recommendations from the Commission on College Basketball and are intended to provide supplemental recruiting opportunities while also preparing prospects for what to expect as college student-athletes. Two four-day sessions were held from July 22-25 and July 25-28, 2019 at four regions throughout the country.
Gary Waters, former Cleveland State, Rutgers and Kent State head coach will serve as the Midwest Regional in Champaign, Illinois.
“The commissioners were selected for their diverse experiences and ability to help prepare these prospects for what they will experience as student-athletes on Division I campuses. We are very fortunate to have four well-respected head coaches who are passionate about the development of young players,” said Dan Gavitt, NCAA senior vice president of basketball.
The commissioners will serve as directors for their respective locations, and they will play integral roles in the development of drills, game rules and life-skills programming for participants. They also will monitor games, make roster changes and mentor academy coaches at each site.
