Friday at the 2009 Pump N Run Showcase

A light night on the schedule at the Pump N Run Showcase. 3 sessions of action. Here's what I saw.

Session 1
Most of this was 15U action. Minnesota Southside put an absolute beating on Metro Elite Basketball Academy. Chad Potas on the roster but not in attendance for MEBA. 82-28 final there, ouch. TC Elite Green and Heat Elite also win big. Heat Select get 4 straight steals from Kevin Poster in a comeback that just fell short against the Fury. They were within 2 late before a turnover resulted in an And 1 on the other end. NW WI All-Stars went on a late 7-0 run to break open a 2 point game against TC Elite White. In the 2 17U games, Heat Select and Pump N Run rolled to big wins.

Session 2
16U games on the docket here. Wear Out The Net took it to PRIDE 77-36. Pump N Run got off to a slow start against Fury Blue down 10-3 early, but a 20-4 run out of a timeout restored order. But Kevin Flesch's triple at the horn cuts the PNR lead to 25-19 at the break. Pump N Run takes care of business in the 2nd half and rolls from there. Is there a better finisher in the 2011 class than Alex Richter? Maybe Joe Coleman but I'm at a loss for anyone else. Fury Gold defeated MSB 667-56 and Grassroots defeated EOTO 80-70. In the 1 17U game I saw bits of, MSB played without David Stanley and Zach Vraa but had Marcus Alipate as a replacement. Lucas Brown played well in the bits of this one that I saw. They defeated Fury Blue 59-48.

Session 3
Enough bouncing around, I decided to stay put and watch the top Wisconsin Swing team. A total beatdown 91-41 by the Swing. Gotta like the Superman S on the Swing jerseys No Kyle Kelm or Evan Richard for the Swing due to prom. Jayme Moten moved up from the 16s for the Comets also due to prom. Marquis Mason was a beast inside as expected and he committed to UW for football today. That also gives him a basketball option. Josh Gasser got to the basket at will. Balanced offense all the way around. Scott Nystrom was a bright spot for the Comets. The Fury Elite won a relatively close game and the Minneapolis Redhawks won big 68-33.
