Plenty of good action this month at the Jamal Crawford Summer League, which at times featured several Huskies, former Huskies and a few NBA stars.
During a July 5 game (video highlights above), Washington incoming freshman Tony Wroten Jr. showed no fear attacking Washington Wizards point guard John Wall on a couple of dribble drives to the rim.
Former UW stars on hand include: Nate Robinson, Isaiah Thomas, Tre Simmons and Donald Watts.
The games are held at Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club. More information is available on the league’s Facebook page.
