Real Deal in the Rock this weekend

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 1:40 PM


The NBA players you'll come to love or hate or cling to in your fantasy basketball league years down the road take to Little Rock and North Little Rock this weekend for this year's installment of the yearly Real Deal in the Rock basketball tournament.

The yearly event showcases the best of the best that high school programs across the country have to offer. Real Deal alumni include Kevin Durant, BJ Mullens, Blake Griffin and likely 2011 NBA MVP Derrick Rose, as well as a slate of college all-stars.

The definite face to watch this year, however, is nationally top-ranked center Andre Drummond of Oakdale, Conn. He plays tonight at UALR's Jack Stephens Center, 7 p.m.
