In the afternoon, players continued their hot shooting in the 4-Ball Competition where all teams have at least one win.
NBA: 1-Celtics (3-1), 2-76ers & Pistons (2-2), Raptors (1-3)
NCAA: 1-Spartans and Loyola (3-1), 3-Wolverines & Villinova (1-3)
Players of the day were plentiful but two who caught the coaches eyes were Aaron Brayman and Jude Bialas. Both had strong positive attitudes and played very well on the court.
From Coach Jillian: Aaron is a third grader at BCS who has been playing basketball for about 5 years. Along with basketball he plays 3 other sports, baseball, hockey, and lacrosse. Even though he plays so many other sports he says that basketball is his favorite. He says that the things he likes most about basketball are dribbling and shooting. The reason I chose Aaron is because he is such an energetic player and he is so fun to work with!
From Coach Sammi: I chose Jude because no matter how hard the training was today, his personality stayed amazing and positive. All day he was kind, polite and helpful. Jude is a 3rd grader from Harlan Elementary School who started playing basketball when he was 6-years-old. His biggest supporter is his father who taught him how to play the game. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are the players he admires most.
Camp will resume on Thursday with more games and contests.
