The 16u AAU Team Rankings


Posted On: 05/10/18 3:40 PM

In the first 10 months of the players earned most of the bright lights.  While this will never change May brings AAU programs and teams to the fore.  Which AAU team carried April?  Did the shoe teams assert their presumed dominance or did an unaffiliated organization usurp the traditionally powerful programs?

AAU teams from Tennessee will not see many head-to-head battles in the coming three months.  A few opportunities to exist outside of EYBL and UnderArmour.  For example, EAB 17u throttled the Memphis Bulls 17u in Birmingham.  Both Nashville and Memphis hosted largely intrastate clashes in April and Memphis in May brings another regional event to the state.  Expect challenging Tennessee only fights this weekend.

With these few exceptions AAU team rankings are not based on head-to-head, rather results, common opponents, and the emergence of star players and deep lineups cohesively thriving.

Enjoy or abhor the first Tennessee 16u AAU team rankings.
