Our game is hurting.
For anyone who truly loves basketball, the news that broke this week about the FBI’s investigation into widespread corruption throughout college basketball is not a surprise…it’s just a sad reality.
And it’s really bad for the game.
This past spring, we ran our first-ever GET SPONSORED contest, offering head-to-toe gear to one team chosen randomly from hundreds of entrants. The Orlando Team Jayhawks were left holding the golden ticket, and we were very excited to see them play in person twice right here in Atlanta!
Now, just in time before the start of fall hoops, we're very excited to announce the winners of our Fall 2015 GET SPONSORED contest...
The winners of our 2015 Get Sponsored contest, the Orlando Team Jayhawks received their head-to-toe gear this past week. The squad will be looking as sharp as ever the rest of the season! What are the Jayhawks working on? How do they continue to develop during the season? We spoke with Coach Smith of the Jayhawks.
As school basketball season winds down, many AAU and summer hoops teams are alreading ramping up. Tournament season has already kicked off in many parts of the country.
We asked some of our leading POINT 3 Alpha skills trainers: Should a player take time off between school and the AAU season?
"Yeah, he's already got some offers from colleges," James told CBS Detroit before the Cleveland Cavaliers' matchup against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. "It's pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn't be recruiting 10-year-old kids."
When basketball fans and members of the media are writing about a 10-year-old, no matter who his father is, it's clear things have gone too far.
