1. 16 U team captures Philly Jam Fest title over Team Final. Finished 5-1 in tourney.
2. Matt Staubi & Chima Azuonmu shine at Hoop Mountain All-Academic Camp.
Chima Azuonwu (Rye, NY, 2014)- Azuonwu’s stock soared on Saturday, as coaches could see the potential in him before their eyes. With his wide shoulders and 6’10” frame, Azuonwu has all the physical tools of a high-major player. He has soft hands, a high motor, and finishes strong, keys for any developing big man. His ceiling is very high due to his lack of experience playing the game (and, therefore, his lack of bad habbits).
Matt Staubi (Darien, 2014)- The little point guard has a really quick first step, making it difficult for the defense to keep him in front. He acted as the catalyst for his team throughout the event, creating offense with his quick, accurate passes and shutting down the opposing team’s best guard.
3. Johnathan Nwankowo featured in Hoop Group Elite III Session.
The Hoop Group opened up their second biggest and last camp of the live period on Tuesday at Albright College in Reading Pennsylvania.
A large group of over 450 prospects were on hand. After tryout games the staff coaches met to draft players for their squads and balance the teams. A look at the top draft picks gives an indication of a few of the top players at the camp.
