Team Zona’s 16U and 17U teams were two of the only AZ teams who played in three consecutive weekend tournaments this July. All three tournaments finished with the 17U team finishing in the final four. The 16U team showed that they have a lot of potential as well.  This organization is loaded with prospects who will see the opportunity to play at various levels after high school. Below are a three takeaways from a strong summer from the Team Zona club organization.

1. Length

While Adam Hamilton was the only prospect over 6’6 in the organization, the team had a lot of prospects who were similar sizes and can play multiple positions. On the 17U team, Fidelis Okereke made up for his lack of size with brute force and skill. Despite being an undersized center at 6’6, his high level of play earned him a scholarship at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

In addition to Hamilton and Okereke,  Paul Hayden Paul Hayden 6'5" | SF Sunnyslope | 2020 State AZ , a 6’5 SF out of Sunnyslope, made a lot of noise this summer and impressed quite a few potential suitors. The group also had two other west valley prospects who played well throughout July in  David Teibo David Teibo 6'4" | PF Ironwood | 2020 State AZ , Centennial, and  Jaden Glass Jaden Glass 6'6" | PF Ironwood | 2020 State AZ ,
