2012 Nike Hoop Summit: Start Time And TV Information For Annual Event

PORTLAND, Ore. -- After a week of practices, the 2012 Nike Hoop Summit -- an international high school basketball showcase game that pits the top players from across the United States against a roster comprised of players from four different continents -- tips off on Saturday night.

Team USA is almost always the heavy favorite in this game and has defeated the World Team in both 2010 and 2011. Early reviews of Team USA from scouts in attendance this week were mixed, though, with a number believing that the World Team could repeat its 2009 upset, its only victory in the last 10 meetings.

WHEN: Saturday, April 7 at 10 p.m. (Eastern) / 7 p.m. (Pacific)

WHERE: The Rose Garden in Portland, Home of the Portland Trail Blazers

HOW TO WATCH: Fox Sports Network (FSN) -- Live broadcast

TICKETS: Purchase at RoseQuarter.com.

WHO TO WATCH: Team USA features at least two future NBA Draft lottery picks: Guard Shabazz Muhammad and center Nerlens Noel. Wing Kyle Anderson's smooth, crafty game and guard Archie Goodwin's scoring prowess are worth keeping an eye on. The World Team is led by versatile Croatian forward Dario Saric, a Hoop Summit veteran, and a pair of talented Canadians: Anthony Bennett, a rugged forward, and wing Andrew Wiggins, a 17-year-old sensation.
