Fifteen 15u teams earned placement in the first @PrepHoopsTN team rankings last week. One fell off the plank (Upward Stars-South) leaving a vacancy. Team Tae Flight Boyz hopped in narrowly.
Two teams took a slight tumble, Hoop City and Chattanooga Elite Navy. A feisty Upward Stars-TN team held on at #5 despite three hunters on their heels. RSD (#6), Memphis Magic Elite (#7) and BMaze (#8) can each make a strong case for top five inclusion.
Don’t overlook the #3 team Bluff City Legends. Their play on Nike’s E15 circuit demands attention.
Two teams climbed significantly up the 15u rankings this week. Club 51 performed well at The Association helping them ascend.
W.A.C.G. put together a fantastic performance outside of Atlanta at E15. Five wins in six games!! Are they better than Team Thad 15u? It is tough to say. While Team Thad captured a Memphis in May Championship and just keeps winning the field for E15 was much, much stronger. Only Houston Hoops 15u found a way to defeat W.A.C.G. this weekend, 66-64.
Both teams play wonderful basketball, but the big stage dominance of W.A.C.G. shoots them to #1 for now.
