Fresh off of her 3rd successful title run in China, our MVP Maya Moore is back home in the U.S., and her agenda is filling up fast. One of her many stops will be in Brooklyn to host the inaugural Jordan Brand Classic National Girls Game on April 17th at the Barclay Center!
Entering its 14th year, the Jordan Brand Classic showcases the top high school basketball players from around the country and the international community. The girls’ game will take place midday at 3:30pm, and Maya, the 1st female athlete in the Jordan Brand family, is definitely excited. According to a press release from Nike:
“I am thrilled to be able to host such an incredible group of talented young women at the Jordan Brand Classic’s inaugural girls game,” said Maya Moore. “The support from the brand to showcase more high school talent further establishes what a premier game the Jordan Brand Classic has become.”
The talented and gifted group of girls hail from all over the country, including NY hometown girls Brianna Fraser (Brooklyn) and Brianna Jones (North Babylon, Long Island). Following the girls matchup will be a 5:30pm game showcasing local talent, followed by the featured game of the nation’s top high school boys at 8:00pm.
