Pittsburgh Jam Fest Recap
After recapping the three national sneaker circuits yesterday, today it's time to turn our focus to what the top non-sneaker teams did during the live period and for the vast majority of them, it meant a trip to Pittsburgh for the Hoop Group Jam Fest.
As usual, New England was well-represented at the event.
Of the 96 teams competing in the elite division, both WrightWay Skills and Middlesex Magic advanced to the Elite 8 while D.C. Blue Devils made it to the round of 16.
WrightWay knocked off Magic White, We-R1 and Ohio Rebels before falling to Crown 55-53. Middlesex Magic beat PTT Blue and PK Flash before suffering an equally narrow loss at the hands of NJ Roadrunners, 48-45. The Magic had four players score in double figures - Will Dorion, Tyler Kolek, George Smith, & Jack Poirier - in their final win over PK Flash. Anthony Kabala, Kam Ferris, Tyler Whitney-Sidney, and Myles Foster all added new offers from WrightWay Skills while Jake Glezen committed to Monmouth a day later.
The Middlesex Magic took the championship in the u16 division with Matt Mulvey and Will Batchedler playing starring roles.
