Right Bounce 8th Grade Recap


Over the years the first game of the event is usually the game that shows the jitters but this group went against the grain and played a very organized and high level game. Overall it was the coaching that really shined early. Both Coach Adams (Metro Hawks) and Mapp (Gauchos) worked the game the way you're accustomed to seeing them operate and the players responded immediately. Strong man-to-man full court pressure, good strong rebounding and solid offensive execution made it appear as if there were a few practices but that wasn't the case. This one came down to the last shot which rimmed out by the red team.
