Word On The Street: Apology In Order

A lot of things are going on around the AAU world right now. So we decided to hit a couple of our sources and bring you another “Word On The Street”. Remember most of this information is not concrete as of yet but mostly from the rumor mill.

My Personal Apology!

First of all I would like to apologize to the South Carolina Ravens for jumping the gun and calling the CB Spiders the National Champs. It was my understanding that the players had switched teams so I just went with the flow. But according to Spiders coach Kevin Graves the team only has two players that played with the Ravens during their title run. In fact the Ravens made an appearance at the Nike Easter Invitational with Keenan Black and Seventh Woods. So until someone cuts down the nets in Memphis I will refer to the SC Ravens as the National Champions.

Too Much Ringing!

It has come to my attention that too many teams are using illegal players during AAU games including Basketball Spotlight events. We always promote fair play and competition. Therefore, we will do everything in our power to find out the teams that are guilty of these accusations. From this day forward any team caught ringing at a Basketball Spotlight event will be put on a list on the website so everyone can read about their horrible deed. They also will lose Summer Slam points gained from any event that the ineligible player participated in.

Green Surfaces At Scan

A reliable source as confirmed that Devonte Green one of the top 8th Graders in the region has surfaced with Team Scan. Green was a long time Gaucho but the test disbanded after Coach Science retired. Green makes TS an even stronger bunch and should help them make a strong run at the AAU Nationals in Orlando, Florida.
