The Clash of the Classes was a fun event Prep Hoops ran years ago when we started. Today we go fictional and picture what that game would look like and how it may go! 

The photo above is from the Clash of the Classes summer of 2016 I believe.  You see Brad Davison, Jordan Horn, Theo John, and others. 

We used ten man rosters but it wasn’t always the best ten players overall, you have to balance things out so there are posts, ball handlers, and wings.  So, our rosters in a 2022 vs 2023 game of Minnesota players would likely be...

Nolan Winter Nolan Winter 6'9" | PF Lakeville North | 2023 State #139 Nation MN vs Joshua Ola-Joseph Joshua Ola-Joseph 6'7" | SF Prolific Prep | 2022 #173 Nation .  Nolan had a brilliant last three months growing in several ways while Joshua Ola-Joseph Joshua Ola-Joseph 6'7" | SF Prolific Prep | 2022 #173 Nation was one of the most productive 2022s in Minnesota, the Midwest, in our Prep Hoops Circuit events, and when they played shoe teams at the Adidas events and in the various Prep Hoops events.  Seeing these two up and comers would be excellent.
