The University of Connecticut was selected to serve as one of four hosts for the second annual NCAA College Basketball Academies, which will take place July 20-26, 2020. UConn, which served as one of the hosts at the inaugural events two months ago, will be joined by the University of Utah, Wichita State University and Winthrop University as the sites for 2020. Created as a result of recommendations made by the Commission on College Basketball, the College Basketball Academies are intended to give prospective student-athletes a glimpse into the college basketball experience while allowing college coaches from across the country to evaluate players from the high school classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023. “We’re thrilled to bring the Academy back to Storrs, and equally excited to have Salt Lake City, Wichita and Rock Hill on board as well,” said Dan Gavitt, the NCAA’s senior vice president of basketball. –thehrr.
