The 2014 Las Vegas Fab 48 welcomed teams from all over the Southwest, as well as; teams from all over the country.
Little did they expect a team from Nashville, whom they referred to as “Country Boys” to make the splash they did.
What an unfortunate call and what a crazy way to end a very productive weekend at the single best tournament on the planet.
Team Penny rode the hot hand of KeVaughn Allen (Arkansas) to a late 83 all tie with the legendary Playaz of New Jersey at the finals of the prestigious Nike Peach Jam in Augusta.
Dominance is a word thrown around a little too much these days.
How about 17 straight wins including three championships, the Spring Classic in 2013, the Kentucky Hoopfest in 2013 and now the Kentucky Hoopfest in 2014. Now that is real dominance.
Week #2 of the “live period” saw tournaments all over the Southeast with coaches making their way from Augusta to Atlanta to Louisville and several stops in between.
In Atlanta the Summer Slam II event had a nice taste of Tennessee with several teams winning the championships in their various brackets and age groupings.
Chattanooga Elite 16 and under marched into the DII AAU National Tournament with something to prove.
By my calculations they did just that.
