The Ny2La Spring Extravaganza finished Sunday with Minnesota teams winning the 15U division (Fury Zurn), the 17U division (WOTN), taking second in 16U (Crossfire), and playing well in the league (Comets and Select).
The 17U level is all about "Prove Yourself". College coaches watching close hoping to add you to their future and seeing you compete against the state's best. The 17U at the Whitney Center, here is what I witnessed on my courts.
The number one high school basketball event of the summer is this weekend at Hopkins High School. The Breakdown State Tournament is a three game event with 32 teams all competing within their respective classes for a summer championship. The eight top contenders in each class will be there.
The Final night in Las Vegas was highlighted by tournament runs and big time performances. Race Thompson led the top individual efforts while the Minnesota Comets NY2LA championship was the top team accomplishment.
With the amount of talent on Hopkins' roster, you'd wonder how long it would take for them to run away with today's game. But Chanhassen kept finding ways in the first half to stick with the AAAA power.
