9:00AM- Welcome to Day 3 of Academic Elite Session 2! This morning the campers are starting off with stations, as I can see a few of the shooting drills from inside the Bollman Center here at Albright College. One of my favorite drills is going ion right in front, I like to call it the jab step wing 1-on-1 drill! Should be another great day of basketball, and always remember to #BeElite! –@JakerBaker58

12:45PM- We have some very intense games happening thios afternoon, with a few players stepping their games up and delivering big time! Wynn Miller(Bishop Ireton, Alexandria, VA) has been extremely hard to defend. Playing the point guard position, and standing at 6’4, Miller has been a beast just bullying his way down low on the smaller opponent. And when the defense shifts a bigger man to him, he beats him with his speed! –@JakerBaker58

2:00PM- Seth Greenburg is here with us today and is teaching the campers some very valuable lessons on how to become a better basketball player. You can’t learn this anywhere else! –@JakerBaker58

2:26PM- Coach Greenburg is really working these volunteers! He just had Vic Jussino(St. Peter’s Prep, Jersey City, NJ) running back and forth doing post move after post move and converting every time! You have to love the teaching that these campers are getting today! –@JakerBaker58

2:54PM- A few of yesterday’s stars from camp, Jay Joyer and Trent Mitchell take the floor this afternoon. Right now Joyer’s squad is looking like the more capable squad. Joyer puts in a dunk to take a 9-0 lead! –@JakerBaker58

3:20PM- Ben Kizel(Millburn, Millburn, NJ) just layed out to deflect a full court pass out of bounds! And on the very next play, Joe Sherwood(Seton Hall Prep, West Orange, NJ) hits a three at the first quarter buzzer! These guys are giving everyone at camp a lesson on how to #BeElite! –@JakerBaker58

4:00PM- Local standout from here in Reading, Gilberto Benz(Reading HS, Reading, PA) has been playing really well today. Benz might not be the tallest point guard(6’1), but his broad shoulders and decent wingspan certainly makeup for his lack of height. Benz has done a good job today separating from the defense and getting open shots after the dribble. He has also been a good defender today, tipping multiple passes and forcing three turnovers! –@JakerBaker58
