Academic and Metro Top 100 Recap

Academic and Metro Top 100 Recap

Two separate events brought over 230 players to the Hoop Group Headquarters in one weekend for the Academic and Metro Top 100’s. With over 20 college coaches in the building throughout the two days, the players were given an opportunity to be seen and coached!

The Show-and-Go portion of the clinic was filled with players dialed into our top-notch staff, and applying what they were learning to the drills. They competed, went hard, and were given some tools to make themselves better!

After the players were split up in to teams the first game set began! The teams that that did not play in the 1st game set headed upstairs to a Recruiting Seminar and Q&A with former D1 Head Coach Pat Kennedy. Coach Kennedy educated the student-athletes on the recruiting process, and what it takes to play the game at the next level.

Game sets were characterized by high intensity basketball! The players competed, shared the ball, and showcased their skill to an audience of college coaches. With each team playing two games, each player had the opportunity to have a role with their team and show what they could do.
