Inside The Tip Off Classic 14U: Team Scan Walks The Walk

Team Scan Gets Off To A Great Start

The 14U Division of the Tip Off Classic brought in the top teams on the East Coast. Spectators packed Hoop Group headquarters for many of their games. Here’s a look at some of the developments from the weekend.

Team Scan Backs Up Talk
Team Scan’s director Terrence “Munch” Williams put the pressure on his young bunch by calling them the 1972 Dolphins. But I have to say that they answered the bell by going through the Tip Off Classic field undefeated. In 3 short years he has turned this program into a household name and their 2012 edition doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Team Scan now has the juice on the 14U level.

Here Comes The Clash
The Tip Off Classic 14U field was great but the Clash For The Cup coming the end of January might be the best in history. Team Final will be making their 2012 Spotlight debut and Cali Styles confirmed their appearance this morning. I can’t wait to see Derryck “Houdini” Thornton hit the East Coast. Then you throw in Team Scan and Team Takeover from Maryland the roof might come off of Hoop Group Headquarters.
