57 NBA scouts will be at North Texas vs. Lehigh tonight

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

A slew of NBA executives will be on hand to scout two potential lottery picks in the 2013 NBA Draft, UNT's Tony Mitchell and Lehigh's C.J. McCollum.

A huge crowd of NBA executives, including six general managers or team presidents, will descend upon the Super Pit in Denton on Thursday night to get a closer look at two potential lottery picks in North Texas' Tony Mitchell and Lehigh's C.J. McCollum.

Mitchell, a 6'8 sophomore forward, is averaging 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds in 29.5 minutes per game for the Mean Green (5-6) this season. As a freshman, Mitchell was named Sun Belt Freshman of the Year after avergaing 14.7 points and 10.3 rebounds in 29.4 minutes per game. He is coming off one of his poorest games of the year, an eight-point effort (on 1-of-9 shooting) in a 45-40 win over Southeast Lousiana last Sunday.

The 6'3 McCollum is the nation's leading scorer, averaging 24.9 points per game for the Mountain Hawks (8-2) this season. The senior improved his draft stock in the NCAA tournament last year, when he scored 30 points in Lehigh's upset of Duke. He's coming off a 29-point, nine-rebound game on Dec. 8 in the Mountain Hawks' 83-67 win over St. Francis.

Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. CT at the Super Pit. The game will not be televised in the Dallas area.
