Word On The Street: Big Things Happening

The AAU season has come to an end but not before making some noise. There have been some interesting developments over the past few weeks that could shake up things going into next season. Here's a look at what's buzzing in the streets.

Supreme Team Arrival? 
According to a reliable source Team IZOD formerly the “Fly Guys” are currently putting together a 13U roster to chase the AAU National title. They are also throwing away the “Fly Guy” moniker and now will be called the “Supreme Team”. My source claims this squad will feature 12-15 of the top players in the region. We will keep you posted as things develop.

Nate “The Great” Exits IZOD 
It has been confirmed the high scoring guard Nate Pierre Louis is no longer with Team IZOD. Pierre Louis has been featured on Team IZOD the last two seasons and has helped take on many titles while winning the 2010-11 Basketball Spotlight Player Of The Year. Rumors have Nate heading over the water to suit up with Team Scan. It’s still early so we will let you know as we get closer to the season.
Terminator On The Loose 
One of the biggest stories of this off season might be where Jamir Harris will land. He played a little with Team IZOD 15U so it will be interesting if they form a 14U team around Harris. We’ve also heard Team Final was in the mix which would make them even more powerful. But what about if he decides to join Pierre Louis at Team Scan, that would take their program right back to the top.
