Check out what this proud coach has to say about his phenomenal team! All of the players listed are AAU Alumni!
Last weekend, my STARZ 3x3 U18 Team that I put together with 2 of my top players and 2 nationally-ranked Class of 2016 players finished Runner-Up and won the Silver Medal at the USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs! We barely lost in the Finals to the USA hand-picked "Dream Team" in a game that was tied with 40 seconds to go. The winner goes on to become Team USA and represent the USA in the World Championships on June 4-7 in Hungary.
The USA Team featured 3 current McDonald's All-Americans from the Class of 2015 (current seniors) and one 2016 player who will be a McDonald’s All-American next year.
My Team featured the following:
