Castle Knights Continue Their Stellar Play
announced June 29, 2015
The Castle Knights continued their strong seasons with another excellent showing this past weekend. The 17U-14U teams went down to Hoop Group headquarters to play in the Summer Showdown, a warm-up act for the “Live” events coming their way in July. And, it turned out to be a great way to shake off the cobwebs from the past few weeks of studying for exams and getting ready for summer ball.
Three teams, the 17U, 16U and 15U Knights, went 3-0 in pool play and, after preliminary bracket play, all three advanced to their respective finals, with the 17U Knights taking home the gold and Michael Laster being named MVP for the age group. The 15U narrowly missed out on the prize, losing by one point in the finals.
We cannot forget the 14U squad, for they did very well also. The Knights went 2-1 in pool play and just missed out on getting to the knockout round.
After the holiday weekend, the teams head to Springfield to play in the Basketbull Summer Championships over the July 10-12 weekend.
