The Pistons Academy Camp in Huntington Woods Peaked today as players revved up their engines, went into high gear and played some inspiring basketball. “It was a high-octane day,” commented Coach Bryan Bollin, “Players were in 5th gear and played really, really hard today. I can’t wait to watch the playoffs!”
Today’s award was Best Teammate and the winner was Ari Perrault-Victor. His constant encouragement and positive attitude has helped his teammates play well and kept a positive attitude when the team wasn’t playing well. Good Stuff!
In the 4-Ball Competition, Baylor continues to dominate with a 11-1 record and winners of nine straight. Baylor captain Nick Meretsky explained his team’s success. “The first two players focus on lay-ups two lay-ups. They shoot really well and then I just shoot free-throws and then switch to 5-pointers with 15 seconds left. I think we can win the Championship!” Check out the latest standings here: 4-Ball Scoresheet
