Playing right next to Sports U IZOD was Team Albany, who may have had just as impressive as a performance. Steals led to transition lay ups and threes like the one right here.

17u Sports U IZOD, a potential favorite in the 17U bracket, takes the floor for warm ups. Marquise McDuffee (St. Anthony’s HS) is just one player to watch on this team.

Despite a loss by Blue Jays Elite (Hodge), a very impressive showing from 17u Darrick Boyd (Cathedral ’11). He had 26 points, made 6 three pointers, and was the floor general for his squad. Very good start to the weekend for the guard.

Another close game took place between the 17u NJ Thunder and the Prestige Patriots. Both teams showed great defensive pressure and caused problems for their opponent, which resulted in a tight contest the entire way through. In the end, it was missed Thunder free throws and a Patriots put back that led to a Patriot win. Check out the last play here:

16u Boston Elite had a strong showing in their first game by tallying an impressive 93 points this morning. Brandon Twitty is definitely a player to keep an eye on. He scored 40 points, fifteen of them coming from deep, in his team’s victory.
