10:33am — Miles Bridges (Boo Williams 17U) has brought his A game today when it counts most. Bridges has carried Boo Williams throughout their matchup against Team Loaded VA, doing a bit of everything offensively while holding a strong defensive presence. A versatile wing with strength and sneaky athleticism, Bridges has hit several three-pointers, while wowing the crowd with a few big slams through traffic.

9:59am — Prentis Hubb (DC Premier 16U) has really made his presence felt all weekend here in Hampton. The Gonzaga (D.C.) point guard is actually a member of the 2018 class playing up an age group, and has been leading the charge for a talented Premier unit. Hubb has caught the eye of nearly every scout in attendance over the course of the weekend, in some way or another.

 

9:40am — We thought it could happen, and now it will. Boo Williams EYBL and Team Loaded VA are meeting in a vaunted 17U Elite 8 matchup. Not only are these two teams perennial heavyweights on the grassroots circuit, but their proximity and history make this a rare natural “rivalry” between AAU squads.

9:31am — One game set down, and we’ve already had a classic finish. Playing from behind in their 16U Elite 8 matchup against River City Reign, Team Loaded 757 fought hard to stick around, and found themselves trailing by one point with 15 seconds to play. Superb inbound defense by guard James Smith forced a five-second call to get the ball back for Loaded.

After the turnover, Jalen Ray took care of the rest from the foul line, adding two of his team high 22 points.

8:55am– Who needs coffee when you’ve got GREAT championship-level basketball? The final day of the weekend tips off with 16U Elite 8 play at Boo Williams Sportsplex. This division is wide open, and has been arguably the most competitive and unpredictable over the past two days.

8:15am– Welcome to Championship Sunday! Strap in and get ready for a big day of action in Hampton. The competition will be fierce, with high-level matchups across the board throughout the day.
