There’s nothing like being back on the bench, coaching talented kids. After a long day where we flew in to Denver early this morning the team visited both University of Northern Colorado and Colorado University. Then it was on to the Gold Crown Fieldhouse (a beautiful 6 court facility) where we played a 5PM game to open the tournament. Jefferson Academy was a school based team so we had them overmatched at every position. The goal was to keep them under 30 points for the game, and we came darn close.
Big 7’0″ 2010 David Hahn came to play and he was an intimidating force in the paint. He had 5 rebounds but it was 6 blocked shots and 3 assists that were most impressive.
After being offered by Colorado this afternoon, 2010 W 6’7″ Andre Roberson of Converse Wagner (below) brought his A game and set the tone early. He finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds.
2011 W 6’5″ Jaleel Williams (below) also dropped 22 points in the win as he hit three from deep and got to the rack with ease.
Jake Kocher 4 points 5 assists
Dylan Elias 3 points, 3 assists
Alex Caruso 4 points
Deon Mitchell 10 points 3 assists, 7 steals
Jalen Washington 5 points 6 rebounds
Reinier Strobos 6 points 4 rebounds
