This year we will finally find out who are the top travel basketball teams in Florida. The state is jam packed with talent from 4th all the way through 11th grade. Yet kids play week after week with little if any recognition. This ends Summer 2016. The top 8 travel basketball teams from Palm Beach and across the state in grades 4th thru 11th will complete in the 1st annual #PBCHOOPS Elite 8 Championship. The tournament will be a single elimination event with teams being seeded from 1-8 and compete for the right to move on, Win or Go Home March Madness style.
Coming into "The Warmup" there were plenty of unknowns, after Day 1 quite a few players that stepped up. Here are some Saturday's top performers:
This is actually the 16U EYBL squad and they are tough. The squad features c/o 2022 twins Amen and Ausar Thompson along with a quartet of Palm Beach County talent from the c/o 2021. Justin Roseme, Christopher Walker, Jason Simpson and Mickeal Ashmore.
Top Performers: Ausar Thompson, Justin Roseme
The NCAA made major changes to the recruiting calendar and the evaluation process as a whole this past fall. Gone is the second evaluation period in April, leaving only one spring weekend for high school players and travel teams to play in front of college coaches, April 26-28, 2019. Now more than ever where teams choose to play during the time leading up to the live period is extremely important. Will they choose to trophy chase, playing in tournaments with very little competition and no media exposure?
For the 5th year in a row we're compiling a list from all the top players, high school and travel coaches in the area to find out where the #PBCHOOPS talent will be playing in spring and summer basketball this year. We began this 3 year ago and it was a very good resource for college coaches, scouts and media to easily find players. If you would like to be listed email email@example.com, text 561-320-2819 or DM on Twitter or Instagram @pbcbballforum
