If it looks like Quinn Cook and Marshall Plumlee improved their games over the summer, they can say a trip to Europe paid off.
Those two Duke players are among a group of college players headed to Estonia next week for the Four Nations Cup, per Mike DeCourcy of AOLSporting News.
Cook and Plumlee join West Virginia’s Juwan Staten and Kevin Noreen, Maryland’s Nick Faust, Xavier’s Brad Redford, Iowa’s Zach McCabe and Stanford’s Dwight Powell as part of the East Coast All-Stars. Also included are three players from non D-I schools: Michael Holton of St. Michael’s, Kevin Anthony and Jerald Williams of Lycoming.
The Four Nations Cup is a four-team tournament held in Estonia starting July 29. The college kids will play a team from Georgia (led by Atlanta Hawks center Zaza Pachulia), the Czech Republic (led by Washington Wizards’ Jan Vesely and host country Estonia.
