A day after reports surfaced that the Nike EYBL again will be running an event at the same time as Under Armour’s Elite 24 in Brooklyn, Under Armour released the rosters for the Aug. 20 game.

The team teams — Team “Clutch” and Team “Drive”— will play at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU. The team names are derived from new Under Armour footwear, ClutchFit Drive 3, Under Armour said.

Team “Clutch” features two players ranked in the top 10 by the 247Sports Composite for the Class of 2017 in Billy Preston (Advanced Prep, Dallas) and Kevin Knox (Tampa, Fla., Catholic) along with Top 20 players Austin Wiley — from Spain Park, Ala., who has yet to announce his high school plans — and Nick Richards (St. Patrick, N.Y.). North Carolina commit Jalek Felton is also scheduled to play for Clutch.

Team “Drive” is led by the nation’s top point guard and No. 5 overall recruit, Trevon Duval (Advanced Prep), and top-10 players Brandon McCoy (Cathedral Catholic, San Diego) and Hamidou Diallo (Putnam Science). Zion Williamson (Spartanburg, S.C., Day), who many consider the top player in the Class of 2018, and top 10 juniors Javonte Smart (Scotlandville Magnet, Baton Rouge), Naz Reid (Roselle Catholic, N.J.) and Silvo de Sousa (Montverde Academy, Fla.) also are on Drive.
