For the first time, the United States Basketball Academy out of Blue River has decided to field a prep team this fall and winter and will do so in the talent-laden Grind Session in games and events against some of the most talent-laden teams in the country.

The squad is a combination of players, about half of which are from the state of Oregon while the others are coming in from out-of-state. Here is first a look at the in-state players on the team.
