Week 4 Players of the weekend
Connor McAndrews 13U Black: "Connor simply dominated the inside with strong moves to the basket and offensive put backs". He averaged 16ppg in leading his team to a 2nd place finish. Connor was also able to get to the free throw line and converted on many of those opportunities. Way to go Connor, keep up the great work!
Jakub Baranski 15U Black: Jakub was the driving force behind his teams championship weekend. While averaging 10ppg Jakub was tough on both ends of the floor. His leadership mixed with his high basketball IQ was sensational to watch. In the championship game Jakub scored a team high 15 points and showed toughness on the defensive end! Excellent job Jakub, keep working hard!
Looking forward to seeing everyone at practice this week. Let's train hard and get a strong finish to this season!
