Testimonials by players:

"The camp and the turnout was great. There was quality players at every position and I think the tournament style set up was good for high level competition. The Blacktop Showcase put me in a great position to get a job and prepare for my 1st pro season. I'll definitely be back next year!" Deremy Geiger 5'10" PG- BC Nitra (Extraleague, Slovakia)

"The Blacktop showcase helped me gain attention from professional teams. The players involved were very talented and all the games were competitive. If you're looking to play professional basketball at a high level, and simply need a platform to do so, the Blacktop showcase will provide an undeniable opportunity." Paul Nelson 6'10" PF/C- Halifax Rainmen (NBL, Canada)

"Blacktop Management Showcase was truly surprising, I have been to "bigger" exposure camps, but the talent was not that great or there wasn't too many coaches to impress.  Jan Wieland and his staff did a great job on bringing in talented players and many coaches from different parts of the world.  Footage was shown via web live, compared to other camps where you have to pay for video of your games. Because of the recognition and offers I received, even as an established pro, I will still come back to the camp cause I know coaches will be there for me to get well connected and signed." Akeem Scott 6'1" PG- Pioneros Cancun (LNBP, Mexico)


"This year's showcase was even better than last year. The games were on a livestream and put up online right after the camp in an archive. Coaches were there and also asked about me. The level is continously getting better at the Blacktop Showcase. Its also a good place to see where I am as a player, going against other great players in the camp. I got another job for the second year in a row thru the showcase, this year playing in the Ireland Surperleague." Darren Townes 6'7" PF- BC Neptunes Cork (Superleague, Ireland)

"The Competition was some of the best I played against during the entire summer. I was able to see what it would take to be a Pro going into my rookie season overseas. It was also well organized and the exposure was great." Dallis Joyner 6'7" PF- Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (National League, Israel)

"I want to thank Blacktop Management for having me at a great event. Overall it was put together well from the venue, players, coaches, media, overall a quality event. I look forward to seeing this grow to an event that will be recognized world wide as a place where coaches can go to find great players!" Semaj Inge 6'5" PG- Temple University
