When I decided to cover high school basketball in the Las Vegas Valley, I said that I would dedicate myself to making sure that the small schools would get the same amount of LOVE as the big schools. Believe me when I tell you that there is talent on all levels, but one thing that happens in Las Vegas it’s a monkey see monkey DO STATE!! So as our brand grows we will continue to push to make sure that the playing field is even. So when i say it’s VEGAS ALL DAY, BELIEVE ME, I MEAN THAT!! I REP THIS CITY!! Next week we will be covering a topic that’s geared towards the parents, In Title: Picking a AAU Program That Best Fit Your Child!!! PS.. QUIT CHASING!!
