    I understand the KY Royals 15U picked up TJ Deere 6'4 PF from CovCath for the State Tourney. That game vs the NKY Force mustve been a doozy. Did anyone play defense? LOL

    On another note, who is on the NKY Force Roster? I know of Rankin (Ryle) and Wilson (Campbell Co).

    Lastly, after watching Omega Wildcats (4 Campbell County Camels) play this weekend and knowing Wilson (NKY Force) and Harrod (NKY Royals) are top players they have a very bright future. I could see some of these kids playing a lot of Varsity minutes next season. The Jolly Twins, Lawrence and Helton all play very physical and have High Basketball IQ's.

Furthermore, National media coverage is of the utmost importance to the 16U/17U age groups when playing outside of the Live Periods. Playing for State pride is Great, but remember, these kids are trying to earn scholarships.... I believe that if State AAU can ensure more National Coverage, then more teams may be prone to attend....
    Good point. I do agree with this as well. Hard to play in KY State AAU over Bob Gibbons.

    [QUOTE=PurplePride92;5937169]They'll never play in it. Nothing to gain and too much to lose. Matts Mustangs put a running clock on Manimal yesterday and won state for the second year in a row. Which team has a higher profile? Wouldn't be a good look if HD or Travelers took one on the chin like that.

    Why would Manimal gold play in the State, I thought they was a shoe sponsored team?
    Matts held Peyton to a single free throw & Cole had 8 pts. 6 coming in the 3rd.

    Manimal isn't very good. They have a combined record of 2-6 (and another win via forfeit) through 2 Gauntlet stops. And that's playing in the Silver division of the Adidas Gauntlet. For comparison, the Louisville Magic went 4-0 with 4 blowout wins in the silver division before moving up to the Gold.

    Matts is the best team that played at state. Period.

    I do think that we can all agree that other than Tay Hollingsworth that Manimal had more "star power" or "names" than Matts Mustangs. Had Matts Mustangs been able to play against HD or the Travelers and still won I also think we can agree that some of the luster to those teams would be lost. One of the reasons the shoe teams are shoe teams is because they have consistently beaten other AAU teams in the state and everyone wants to play for them so they can win and reap the benefits of playing for a shoe team. The day that doesn't happen anymore it becomes a problem for HD and the Travelers. Not only do HD and the Travelers have nothing to gain by playing on the KY State AAU but that is bad business for both of them. They both should definitely be playing in Atlanta and not KY that weekend.

    Tay Hollingsworth is a pretty big asset. No wonder they won.

    No doubt but beating Manimal the way they did was surprising. KY Hoopsters gave Matts Mustangs a better game than Manimal did.

    Or just maybe the star power that Manimal has is a bit overrated.

    Shout-out to the NKY Force for making it to the title game, where they were way overmatched but still had a good tourney run to make it that far. They beat the NKY Royals and Dontai Allen along the way.
