Veritas Prep, a nationally-ranked basketball academy located in Santa Fe Springs, CA is taking its show east to Schurr High School.

On Jan. 19th, Veritas will face Shantou University from China in a game at Schurr High School. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.

Gino Torres, the Athletic Director for the Schurr Spartans is organizing the event with Veritas Prep founder George Zedan.

Coach Zedan, "It’ll be great, especially with a lot of our athletes coming from all over the country and getting to play against a college-aged international mens basketball team. It should be really exciting for people to see a team with a different cultural back ground,  and a different country with their unique style of play and the passion that they compete with. It should be an amazing night. I really believe that it’s going to be a phenomenal event for our community and for our program.”

The event will serve as a fundraiser for the basketball program. Zedan will be searching for donations in hopes of raising enough money to make the event free for everyone.
