Joseph and Thompson to play in Rucker Park all-star game

Findlay College Prep point guard Cory Joseph will join teammate Tristan Thompson in an Aug. 21 all-star game at the famed Rucker Park in New York.

The fourth Boost Mobile Elite 24 will feature the top players in the nation. Thompson, a 6-foot-9 power forward, was included in the first dozen list. Joseph, a 6-4 floor general, was added to the second dozen this afternoon.

Natives of the Toronto area, Thompson and Joseph helped Findlay go 33-0 and win the first ESPN National High School Invitational in Maryland in April.

Thompson has committed to Texas. Louisville, Kansas, UNLV and others are involved with Joseph.

Oak Hill Academy shooting guard Doron Lamb, whose Warriors lost to the Pilots in the championship game of the ESPN tournament in North Bethesda, Md., is scheduled to play at Rucker.

Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict’s point guard and Texas commit Myck Kabongo, close friends with Thompson and Joseph for years, also will play in the Rucker game.

ESPNU will show the game at 4 p.m. on Aug. 22.
