After watching several hours of workouts and live play, I came up with 5 players who really caught my eye throughout the course of the day. Some with the ability to play at the next level, and others with an opportunity to help make an impact on their High School teams. Please keep in mind I saw the red and gray teams far more than I did yellow and purple.
#PBCHOOPS "Showtime" was a highly anticipated showcase event established primarily to expose local players to a competitive environment against their peers outside of a team activity. The morning session featured some of the areas top 2021 and specially invited class of 2022 players. The main focus of the day was to preach to players the value of opportunity. After a lack luster opening 45 minutes of effort the group was brought together before entering in to the game play session of the event.
The "Welcome to the Show" series was created with the mission to give incoming freshman a taste of what it takes to compete and play basketball at the high school level. Top players in class of 2022 came to Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth to not only compete against some of the best in their class but see if they could handle the intense agenda for the day.
Tough competition, high level talent and local are the three words that best describe Day 1 of The Warm Up by Team Knight. Here is a recap of Saturday's games:
2-0 wins over Ball4Lyfe and Florida Future-Arthur. This group showed a lot of toughness after going down early 11-0 to in their game against Ball4Lyfe. They locked in and turned the game around late in the first half. Pulled out the victory 49-40
Basketball Development and #PBCHOOPS presented Jump Start, a middle school boys evaluation event designed primarily for players in Palm Beach County but also attracted talent from across the state. In it's first year we were able to secure the premiere and most well respected talent evaluator in Florida, Tony Perkins, to not only evaluate talent but provide much needed feedback to players and parents. 33 players where in attendance making the inaugural event highly anticipated.
