Through its first nine years, the Under Armour Elite 24 has produced 34 lottery picks, including three No. 1 overall picks. 

Now in its tenth year, the Under Armour Elite 24 has established itself as a premier high school basketball event where players not only battle for bragging rights and streetball nicknames, but use the event’s platform as a springboard to the highest level of the game.

D’Angelo Russell, a big point guard who helped Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) capture FAB 50 national titles in 2013 and 2014 before starring at Ohio State for one year, was the highest NBA Draft pick among event alumni in 2015. Selected No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, Russell is the seventh top three NBA Draft pick who played in a previous Under Armour Elite 24 game.

Twelve former Under Armour Elite 24 participants were chosen in the first round in 2015, breaking the previous record of nine set in 2012.

In addition to 34 lottery picks, the event has now produced three No. 1 picks and 55 first round picks.

History shows there’s a good chance a handful of players in this year’s game will one day become lottery picks.
