Saint Mary’s commit Angus Glover has been named to the World Select Team for the Nike Hoop Summit. The 6’4 guard will be the only Australian to feature in the game.

Australian NBA stars Ben Simmons and Dante Exum have all featured in the game in recent years, as has Thon Maker who was joined by William McDowell-White and Harry Froling in the 2016 edition of the event.

Glover was on an Illawarra roster that made it all the way to the NBL grand final series. However he did only feature in three games. The New South Welshmen was also selected to play for his country in the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship.

Glover dominated for his state earlier this year in the U20 National Championships. He finished the tournament with 18.5 points, and 3.17 steals per game. A 28-point performance against WA was topped off by this spectacular play.

The Aussie will attempt to impress NBA scouts, however will have tough competition, sharing the court with the likes of Isaiah Hartenstein, and Tadas Sedekerskis.

The game will take place at the Moda Center in Portland on April 8 (AEDT).
