Coming to you from Portland, Oregon, this Saturday night, we will be there to give you the breakdown on who dominated and who disappointed.

Team USA Roster
This roster includes seven of the United States' 10 top-ranked players in 2011.
Davis, Teague, Rivers, Gilchrist and McAdoo are all considered top prospects for the 2012 NBA Draft as well.
Most of these players, fresh off the McDonald’s All-American game, are primed to continue the high school All-Star circuit with strong performances in this exhibition, in preparation for their big debuts in the NCAA next season.
Below is the roster of international players that the top prep stars will be taking on, including a couple of scouting reports and the country from which they are from (as well as their school, if available).

The talk of the international team is Bismack Biyombo, who has freakish length (6’9” with a 7’7” wingspan) and whose stock is soaring up the 2011 draft boards.
Lucas Nogueira is young, 7'0" and considered a first round pick if he enters the draft this year.
Wiltjer should be a local favorite, as he’s from Jesuit High School in Portland and has an all-around, fundamental game that will shine in the NCAA next season.
Stay tuned to SwishScout.com this weekend as we break down the notable performances and progression of these young stars after the game.
