The final full June weekend included a heavy helping of basketball exploits. Hundreds of players camped with colleges, while both high school teams and AAU teams tended to compete across the southeast. Grab a seat, put your feet up, and peruse our state’s basketball newsletter.

Tonight is Connor Arnold’s (2017) first night as a college freshman on VMI’s campus. Formerly a star with Grace Christian, Connor Arnold spent 2017-2018 with Beckley Prep in West Virginia. He earned a VMI offer and signed accordingly.
Intriguingly, Class of 2019 point guard Jerriah Love of the Tennessee Prospects 17u team worked out with VMI Saturday. He plays for Science Hill High.
