2009 Festival of Teams Results

Some thoughts on the results from the 2009 Festival of Teams. Full results can be found here.

17U
No major pool shockers here for the Minnesota teams. Heat Elite took out Magic Black 56-54 on Saturday afternoon in a good matchup of local teams.

Biggest shocker had to be All Iowa Red going 1-1 in pool play. The Iowa State boards are going nuts about Harrison Barnes leaving that program to join Howard Pulley full time. I still don't think Minnesota has any shot at Barnes and with Vander Blue decommitting from Wisconsin (suppossedly), I'd love to see them jump in the race.

The loaded Spiece MoKan club took out Pump N Run 50-44 in the semis and then the Fury Elite in the finals. Pump N Run took out Magic Black in round 1 by 11 and only beat 94 Ft by 1 in the quarters in a surprise.

16U
Tough break for MN Heat Elite getting Speice in the 1st game, but they rolled thru the rest of the weekend including a 20 point thrashing of Wear Out The Net in a revenge game before taking out Magic Culp 64-42 for the Silver Title. Speice MoKan won the Gold bracket by taking out Pump N Run 70-61.

15U
Speice Mo Kan goes clean sweep with this title as well. They took out MN Southside by 1 in the quarters and MN Suns by 15 in the semis. Pump N Run took out the MN Static 67-33 in pool play in a real eye opener. Static also fell big to the MN Suns in the bracket opener. Pump N Run won their bracket opener before a bye to the semis and lost to All Iowa Attack Red. I'm surprised that 43 Hoops went 0-2 in their pool but they've had injuries all season.
