94 Boys and girls from the metro-Detroit area came together at the Franklin Athletic Club Monday to tip off the 2017 Summer Camp Tour. “This is our 5th year at Franklin and it was by far the best opening” said Pistons Director of Fan Development Geo Thomas, “I think its going to be a great week of basketball!”
The day tipped off with Aaron Smith running the “KCP” defensive drill, always a camp favorite. Then the camp transitioned to 1-on-1 and 3-on-3 contests where campers were evaluated on their skill sets. “Its only pre-season but we’ve seen some pretty good basketball,” said Camp Director Aaron Smith, “Competitive games and plenty of great attitudes”
All of the shooting contests were under way as each team played 3 games of 4-Ball. In the Steph Curry Division, Purdue (Joshua Gibson-Captain) sits atop the standings with a 3-o record and the camp’s high score of 106. In the Chauncey Billups Division, Utah and Vanderbilt are tid for first with perfect 3-0 records. 4-Ball Monday Standings
