"[Washington coach] Lorenzo Romar and [Villanova coach] Jay Wright did a terrific job of coaching the select players in Las Vegas. It worked so well we’ve decided to bring to New York a smaller group of players from that Select Team to do the same thing. They were very valuable to us and it’s a great experience for them."

The college players will arrive in New York Aug. 9 and train Aug. 10-13.

Singler returning to Duke for senior season

Duke junior Kyle Singler will return for his senior season, the school announced Monday.

"I love being here at Duke and am excited about next year," Singler said. "I had two great options in front of me, but I did not want to miss out on all of the great things to come in a senior season."

Singler has averaged 15.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in three seasons.

His return ensures Duke will be a preseason top three team, perhaps as high as No. 1.
