NBA and Nike EYBL team up for new showcase at In-Season Tournament

The National Basketball Association (NBA) and Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) will team up to host the first EYBL Scholastic Showcase, a basketball competition and player development event for six top high school basketball programs that will take place from Dec. 7 through Dec. 9 in Las Vegas as part of the NBA In-Season Tournament Semifinals and Championship weekend.

The EYBL Scholastic Showcase will feature a series of regular-season high school basketball games at the Las Vegas Aces Headquarters as well as one game that will be played at T-Mobile Arena on Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. PT on ESPNU. 

Four of the five games will stream on the NBA App, with two games scheduled to re-air on NBA TV and highlights featured on NBA Future Starts Now.

The teams will also participate in life-skills seminars, coaching-development sessions and NBA Cares community-outreach activities as well as attend the NBA In-Season Tournament Semifinals.

The EYBL Scholastic Showcase schedule is below, with all games being open to NBA team front-office personnel for player-evaluation purposes.

The EYBL Scholastic Showcase will see some teams outfitted in NOCTA-designed jerseys and feature a rest and recovery space to support the growth of the next generation of basketball athletes.

Nike EYBL, the premier spring and summer youth basketball circuit comprised of top high school-age male and female players in the country, recently extended its programming to a year-round basis with the launch of EYBL Scholastic. The EYBL Scholastic Showcase builds off the NBA’s support of Peach Jam and Nike Nationals in July 2023, which saw 20 Peach Jam games stream on the NBA App for the first time and the integration of new off-court programming focused on life skills and leadership development, player health and wellness, and female coach recruitment and retention.

More than 230 NBA and WNBA players have EYBL experience, and there are 13 EYBL teams currently sponsored by NBA and WNBA players including Bradley Beal, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Blake Griffin, Sabrina Ionescu, LeBron James, Kia Nurse, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook. 

Nike, which has been an NBA partner since 1992, has served as the official on-court apparel provider of the NBA, WNBA and NBA G League since the 2017-18 season as well as the Basketball Africa League (BAL) since 2021.
