"Super 40" Invitational--(Apr. 14,  2000)

Where: Cal State Northridge
Who:  Top 50 Double Pump Invitees
Times: Saturday--9:00a.m.  to 5:00 p.m., Sunday 9:00 a.m. to Noon

Earlier this week we alluded to the fact that adidas and Double Pump would be holding a special invitational workout for some of the top players in the region, and we just got the list of invitees, and it's got some of the top players from aorund the the country and includes many of the top players in SoCal.  The event is designed to be a true workout, with an early focus on post play, perimeter guard skills, defense, skill work, drills and fundamentals. In particular,  the concept is to allow college coaches in attendance to observe what the players can do in a structured settIng, with college-level coaching, not just in open and unstructured games where they run up and down the floor.  The workouts will be led by Phil Bryant and Aubrey McCreary, and Dave Hopla will also coach some shooting drills.  We've seen the agenda for each day and it's very structured and designed to show a variety of things besides just a player's pure athleticism.   Besides  inviting some of the top players to this event, the Pumps have also invited coaches from all over the country and there will be coaches from every Pac-10 school and virtually every other conference in the West as well.  Coaches from UCLA, Stanford, USC, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona, Arizona State, Syracuse, New Mexico, and many other schools will be in attendance, and since this is not only an open evaluation period, but the late signing period as well, this will provide a terrific opportunity for coaches to see some of the best basketball in the region. . . between this event and Rockfish, there will be just a ton of good basketball tomorrow and Sunday.  Here's the list of attendees who will be participating (arranged in ascending order of height):
