Hoops Training came in 3-1 but lost 2 blowouts to the top of the league today. Trevor Gruis (Ellsworth) really struggled vs the size of the Sibley frontline and the combination of Taylor Sparkman and Taylor Hanson of Minnehaha. On my highly unofficial stat sheet, I had 2-12 FG vs Sibley and 3-11 FG vs Minnehaha with a combined 11 points in the 2 games for him.


  1. The Hoops Training Fall league team has never practiced together. They are kids from several different schools in southwest Minnesota. This was the third weekend they've played together. Some of these kids travel over 2 hours on the morning after they've competed at a Friday evening sports event. The Sibley team is a school team with some very talented athletes that have played and practiced together for some time. Hoops also has several talented athletes. Keep this in mind when your evaluating these players,when they are on the court at the same time.

  2. Don't get me wrong, they were impressive in week 2 against a full squad from Armstrong. I mentioned their record as a complement to their performance in the event. Minnehaha and Sibley have played as well as anyone in this league. Losing to those teams (fully loaded at that) is no shame.
