I always start off with something that I believe young people can benefit from, let’s start with a very POWERFUL WORD call (TRUTH), what is the Definition. According to the dictionary it’s, that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality. Most of US have been told to tell the TRUTH regardless of circumstances. In the field of writing it’s very important to be honest with your readers, I’m in a field where most people want to know about youth basketball players in the City of Las Vegas and abroad. Young people always remember NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR POSITION ON TELLING the TRUTH, this is what SEPARATE the STRONG from the WEAK!! Believe me if I POST something or WRITE something, it’s just not based off FACTS, it’s based off ACTUAL FACTS and there is a DIFFERENCE!! I don’t write to PLEASE BASKETBALL PROGRAMS in the City of Las Vegas, I WRITE TO EMPOWER OUR YOUNG PEOPLE to see their SELF-WORTH. Parents you must understand that basketball is a very emotional game with ups and downs MENTALLY, it’s just a game of Entertainment!!! 90% of our children will not play at the NEXT LEVEL, so what should we really be focused on. It should be them finding their PURPOSE IN LIFE! THAT’S CALL THE KNOWLEDGE OF SELF!!! JUST A LITTLE FOOD FOR THOUGHT!! So Let’s Get Down To Business!!
In the 17U Division very familiar names and programs were in this field, EYBL Nike Sponsored Powerhouse Houston Hoops and Las Vegas Prospects, you also had Adidas Sponsored Las Vegas Knicks, Vegas Elite is a big time program in the City of Las Vegas. But you also had some very good Independent programs like the Las Vegas Olympians, Las Vegas Dynasty, 702 Attack, Simply Fundamental basketball Academy (NV) all of these team were competing at a very high level, it was fun to watch. The Shocker of the day was 702 Attack over EYBL Houston Hoops 71-68 led by two c/o 2017 players 6’5 SF Je’rell Springer and 6’5 SF Tre Abdullah both players finish with 22 point and played great defense.6’5 SF Je’rell Springer of 702 Attack
6’5 SF TRE Abdullah of 702 Attack
But at the end of the day it came down to, two Las Vegas programs, me personally I would have not had it any other way 702 Attack vs. EYBL Las Vegas Prospects, I can honestly say 702 was very HYPE for this game. The Las Vegas Prospects have established themselves over the years with a winning tradition, and everyone want to beat them that’s just the TRUTH. The game was tight from the beginning but as the game progressed the Prospects started to flex their muscle! c/o 2018 Jarrod Burks- Las Vegas Prospects, 6’3 G, good prospects, he’s a underrated Player. He does the little things!
c/o 2017 PG Capri Uzan of 702 Attack would not let his team lose, he knock down some big shots, and they receive big defensive efforts from 6’1 Guard c/o 2017 Antwan Graves, and big plays from c/o 2017 6’7 Forward Carl Fisher, c/o 2017 6’5 Maui Christian is a glue guy that does whatever you need him to do, he just make plays.
The game came down to two big possessions a steal by c/o 2019 PG Najeeb Muhammad of 702 Attack, and a baseline drive, and pass to Tre Abdullah in the corner.
Tre Abdullah missed the first 2 shots, as the building was going crazy for him to missed the third shot, but he finish the game in epic fashion with the clutch knock down. 2017 BigFoot Hoops Easter Showdown 17U Platinum Division Champs
The 16U Platinum Division Bigfoot Hoops Easter Showdown Champs was the Las Vegas Prospects, this is a very good team that will win a lot of game. Congrats!
Where do I start with this division, there is a lot of talented players in the City of Las Vegas who play in this age category. To programs are out front in this age Division Vegas Elite 2020 and Las Vegas Prospects 2020 Teams, both team ran through their pool play. They met up in the championship, but it was not close at all, team chemistry from a team that plays year round really showed. Vegas Elite Flex their Muscle and never look back! Final score was 83-42 led by Noah Taitz 42 point he was on FIRE WOW!! HE’S A VERY GOOD PROSPECTS!
Congrats to Vegas Elite 2020 Team
