Allen Iverson is set to officially retire as a 76er in a few days, but first he had to make a stop in Dallas, Texas, to participate in the midnight madness festivities for Prime Prep Academy, and visit his former coach, Larry Brown at SMU. Emmanuel Mudiay is the top point guard in the class of 2014, and recently picked SMU over John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats.
