Braxton Ogbueze, a junior point guard at United Faith Christian Academy, and Patrick Rooks, a sophomore guard from Charlotte Christian, will participate in the Challenge at Raleigh Ravenscroft on March 26.
Players will play scrimmage games and also will attend skill sessions led by former Michigan high school coach Denny Kuiper. Alan Stein, the head strength and conditioning coach at DeMatha Catholic High School (Maryland), will be the featured speaker.
Butler junior point guard Jalen White also was selected for the game.
