10:35AM- NJ Got Game defeated Brookwood Bounce Elite (Can.) 52-50 to advance to the 16u Final Four. They will face the Pa. Renegades at 11:20 a.m.

NJ Got Game led 48-47 with 20 seconds to go when Jordan Sanders (Moore Catholic (N.Y.)/5-10/2014), who finished with 13 points, sank two free throws to up the lead to three.

After a Brookwood free throw brought the NJ Got Game lead back to two, JaDon Robinson’s (Rutgers Prep (N.J.)/6-1/2015) two free throws iced the win.

11:15AM- And another semifinal matchup ends as the Brookwood Bounce Elite(CAN) defeat the NYC Jayhawks(NY) by a score of 63-49. The Jayhawks brought a lot of great effort to the game, as the team was led by SuperStar-in-the-making, Dominique Williams(Believe Prep, NY, 2014), who led his team with 20 points with both inside post moves and outside jumpshots. Williams scored 67 points in his final three games of the Tournament. The NYC Jayhawks will return in the Buzzer Beater Classic next weekend!

For Brookwood Bounce Elite, they won with a complete team effort. After the game I spoke with Noah Daoust(Hotchkiss, CT, 2014), who had this to say about his team: “we won because we had a great team effort, all of our guys were mentally locked in on this game and we brought a lot of great energy off of our bench as well. [The Jayhawks] are a really good team, I think we just played them really tough and just got the best of them. Number 14(Dominique Williams) is a great player and our whole goal was to stop him. Even though he played really well I think we did a good job stopping him enough and that’s why we won.” Brookwood Bounce will move on to the Final Four where they will play this afternoon. –@JakerBaker58

11:18AM- Mid Atlantic Select (Md.) couldn’t hold on to a double-digit lead, as they lost 56-54 to Expressions Elite (Mass.). Cane Broome had a game-high 18 points in the win, while C.J. Keyser led the way for MAS with 15 points, including a highlight reel dunk. –@AndrewKoob
