Video: John Wall high school highlightsNBA All-Star played for Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh, N.C.
John Wall made an appearance Thursday night at the John Wall Invitational in Raleigh, N.C.
While it may seem like a foregone conclusion that the Washington Wizards point guard would show, it's not always possible for NBA players to appear at namesake events during the season.
The Wizards had an off night between home dates with Indiana and Brooklyn, giving the three-time NBA All-Star an opportunity to get to Raleigh.
He saw a good one as Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix, Ariz.)
knocked off Cannon 72-64 behind 27 points and 13 boards from 7-foot-1 DeAndre Ayton
, the nation's top Class of 2017 prospect according to 247Sports.
As a senior at Word of God Christian Academy (Raleigh, N.C.)
back in 2010, Wall participated in the same event – then known as the GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational.
