Lorca-Lloyd Chosen for Basketball Without Borders
It's been a big week for Northfield Mount Hermon junior Maxwell Lorca-Lloyd.
It began over the weekend when the big man recorded his 80th block of the season in a win over Cheshire Academy at the National Prep School Invitational and in so doing etched his name in the NMH record books for the most blocks in a single season.
On Wednesday, he received word that he had been selected for the fourth annual Basketball Without Borders Global Camp, a joint initiative between the NBA and FIBA that hosts roughly 40 international prospects from around the world to a prestigious camp open to NBA personnel during All-Star weekend.
This year's event will take place at the Los Angeles Lakers' practice facility and will include measurements, athletic testing, drills, and game play. While this is just the fourth year of the event, a distinguished alumni list already includes R.J. Barrett, Jamal Murray, Lauri Markkanen, and Thon Maker among others.
Lorca-Lloyd, who represented Chile this summer, was one of just 43 players to be selected. That group includes prospects from 36 different countries and only 10 currently playing in the United States.
