Top prep players talk college hoops, NBA and fandom

They might be teenagers, but the top high school boys basketball players in the country don't expect to waste too much time in college basketball and don't want to squander it playing in a 96-team tournament. That's the opinion of four players at a recent round-table discussion before the Jordan Brand Classic all-star game. Bishop O'Connell (Arlington, Va.) guard Kendall Marshall and St. Patrick (Elizabeth, N.J.) guard Kyrie Irving are headed to North Carolina and Duke, respectively. Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) guard Cory Joseph and Word of God (Raleigh, N.C.) forward C.J. Leslie expect to announce their choices soon. (USA Today)
