Future Cards Going Head-To-Head Tonight On ESPNU

USA TODAY Sports

The adidas Nations camp out in Cali has been all about Card on Card crime up until this point.

First, there was future backcourt mates Russ Smith and Chris Jones duking it out in Sunday night's camp counselor championship game. Now, U of L commits JaQuan Lyle and Shaqquan Aaron will be going up against one another when the USA Blue squad takes on USA Red tonight at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.

Top Pitino targets Trey Lyles, Stanley Johnson and Myles Turner will be among those also on the court tonight.

Here's a quick preview of the game from the mothership:

Championship: USA Red (2014 class) vs. USA Blue (2014 class) - 9 p.m. ET

Players to watch: There's no doubt the player to watch is 2014 top prospect Jahlil Okafor, a 6'10, 265-pound center from Whitney Young High School in Chicago. Throughout the camp, Okafor has consistently led the USA Red team in the rebounding department and often in scoring as well. But he's coming off a relatively rough outing against the 2015 USA Red team. He notched 12 points and 11 rebounds but turned the ball over five times and hit just 2-of-12 shots from the free throw line.

Okafor has gotten frontcourt help from rail-thin power forward Kevon Looney, who is coming off his own 12-point, 11-rebound game. Looney might be thin, but ESPN's ninth-rated player in the 2014 class has held his own in the shot-blocking realm. Top-15 prospects Stanley Johnson of Mater Dei High School and fellow swingman Justise Winslow round out the players to watch for the USA Red team.

Fourth-rated 2014 prospect Trey Lyles, a 6'8, 210-pound power forward, is the highest-ranked player on the Blue squad. He's coming off one of his stronger games this week, a 7-of-9 shooting performance that netted 19 efficient points.

Center Myles Turner, another top-10 recruit, will be an interesting matchup for the Blue team against Okafor. Turner gives up a good deal of weight at 6'11, 225 pounds, but he's been engaged as anyone defensively thus far. In the Blue squad's semifinal win against Africa, Turner took just four shots but grabbed eight rebounds and recorded three blocks. He hasn't rejected fewer than two shots in his four games played.

Top-25 prospects D'Angelo Russell, an Ohio State Buckeyes commit, and UConn commit Daniel Hamilton have also been scoring consistently for a balanced Blue team.
