Isaiah Briscoe, Omari Spellman invited to 2014 Big Strick Classic

The Big Strick Classic has released the first ten players to compete in the high school all-star event on August 9th at the New York Gauchos Gym in New York. The fourth annual all-star game features a national team (Team USA) clashing against a New York City-area team (Team NYC) with the full rosters being released later this month.

Seton Hall's top 2015 target, Isaiah Briscoe (NJ Playaz/Roselle Catholic, N.J.), and 2016 target Omari Spellman (Team SCAN/MacDuffie School, Mass.) have been paired together on Team NYC along with recent Reebok Breakout Classic standout Derrick Jones. Spellman will play his first season at the MacDuffie School after transferring from his hometown in Ohio this summer; he was offered by Seton Hall and visited their South Orange campus unofficially in June.
