Today was a high-flying Thursday at camp and not just because the Pistons Flight Crew dazzled us with their dunks… There were many special performances on the court!
In 4-ball, Michigan State, led by captain Yahya Husain, has taken over first place in the Chauncey Billups Division. MSU has won seven straight games and has opened an 8pt lead over Rutgers. However, Rutgers is also one of the hottest teams around having won six straight. It should be an exciting playoff run for both teams.
In the Steph Curry Division, Duke remains in first place with a 14-1 record and is enjoying a 10-game winning streak. They defeated both Indiana (10-5) and Baylor (12-3) in the afternoon games. The team that may have the best shot at Duke is Clemson. They have won three straight games and captain Noah Gillum has his team in sync. Single elimination rounds start Friday.
