Just before dinner Saturday evening Team Thad 16u was cooking.   Team 1848 did hit the game's first two shots.  They did infuse the game with energy from the jump. 

Regardless, Team Thad 16u basted them, 87-48. 

Mississippi freshman Cedquavious Hunter lead all scorers with 25 points (6 made 3's).

The Burner is On

Kameron Jones, one of the hottest 2021's in Tennessee, scored his team's first two field goals.

Hobbled not Hurt

Midway through the first half, then top scorer Kameron Jones suffered a leg injury. Team Thad 16u Head Coach Josh Weeden subbed him out seconds later. 

It didn't matter.

Constant, Sustained Pressure

Isaiah Jones finished a gorgeous pull up. 

Jones tried to repeat the shot. Though he missed Jones tipped the rebound out to his corner-residing teammate Hunter.  Smooth release, smooth taste of twine. 

Leaning on their second unit, Team Thad 16u opened the game up to 32-19.

The Swarm

Mentioned here before, Team Thad constricts opposing offenses with a forever tightening python grip. One guard casually contains the dribble in the backcourt. A second guard hops over to trap and before the dribbler raises his head the entire defense jumped to strangle him. Nobody is open.
