The group of Nebraskans selected for the June 21-23 Midwest Showcase at North Liberty High School outside of Kansas City is now official.

In late March the NSAA sent an email to every high school coach in Nebraska asking for nominees for this specific event. Those players nominated by their high school coach were then selected by a committee of Nebraska high school basketball coaches and athletic administrators.

The players selected will participate with players selected from a six-state region: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

Note: Some players may be participating with their high school or scholastic teams and their coaches chose not to nominate them.

There are now two new NCAA evaluation periods, which are times the NCAA allows Division I college basketball coaches to evaluate high school players. The Midwest Showcase is the first of two weekends geared toward scholastic or high school teams in June.

In theory, the new periods are a shift in recruiting emphasis away from the AAU circuit and back to the high school scene during the month of June, when players are not traveling with their summer or AAU teams.
