After weeding out the best of the best on the Dykman courts, the top recruits go on to the big game at City College of NY in Harlem. Ballers came from as far as Canada for a shot at winning the game and latching on with Ball Up. From NYC, two local MVPs will move on to the next round in hopes of landing a Ball Up team contract.
