Event organizers have also hinted there may be more surprises.
Past events showcased remarkable performances, such as Scottie Barnes and Malachi Flynn combining for an astounding 88 points in a sold-out Toronto gym. Flynn’s MVP-worthy 54-point performance left fans hungry for more electrifying moments.
Players Davis, Melton, and Pritchard will also host a basketball camp for Vancouver’s youth at SFU, inspiring and nurturing talent through interactions with pros.
