17u Showcase – Gold Bracket
After defeating the Georgia Stars in the Elite 8, most expected to see a Final Four game between BABC and Memphis YOMCA in what would be a re-match of the Peach Jam Championship Game, a chance at revenge for YOMCA. But they never made it, getting upset by Hoop Heaven Elite and their star PG Jaren Sina, a 2013 stud who is committed to Alabama. Along with Lone Peak out of Utah, HHE plays the most efficient brand of ball we have seen in 2011. This afternoon in the semis, Hoop Heaven Elite gave BABC all it could handle before BABC finally pulled away at the end to win by 14. There is no doubt that HHE won the respect from the Buzz Club, who now moves on to play the Houston Defenders in the Championship Game later today. The Defenders are led by the backcourt of twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison, and down low will be a nice match-up between Nerlens Noel and Shaq Cleare. Tune in to ESPN3 at 7pm to take this game in.
