On August 17, 13 of the top high school basketball players in the nation traveled to the Bahamas for "The Trip." The players went through two days of intense workouts before their Saturday night game against the Bahamian National Team. Bleacher Report's cameras came along for the journey.

Following the first workout, the team participated in the #22PushUpChallenge to raise awareness for veteran suicide. Coach Miles Simon led the group.


Later in the day, the team was invited to the Atlantis Penthouse Suite to attempt an epic trick shot, which 5-star PG Collin Sexton nailed from 17 floors up.


At night, the team took over Atlantis' basketball court to put on an insane dunk show.  


On Day 2, 5-star PF P.J. Washington teamed up with one of the talented Atlantis dolphins for a legendary alley-oop.

After returning from The Trip, 5-star SG Lonnie Walker announced his top five schools in a Bleacher Report exclusive video.
