43 Hoops leaves undefeated in Bloomington

More updates on the 43 Hoops 16U Carr squad in Bloomington, IN this past weekend

Game two in Pool play vs. Michigan Mustangs. Mustangs 34-32 at the half. Second half was a totally different story. 43 Hoops holds the Mustangs to 20 second half points and wins going away 78-54. Jordan Smith 15pts, Marquel Curtis and Ross Travis 13 points and Jameson Parsons scoring 12 pts. Ross Travis had a game changing dunk in the second half that "posterized" the Mustangs 6' 9" post player.

Opening round of bracket play on Saturday was against SYF (who many of us saw in the Pulley tournament). 41-28 lead at the half, 73-56 43 Hoops wins. Jordan Smith 14 points, Jake White 11, Tom Schalk 10 and 6 offensive boards. Estan Tyler 8 assists.

To Assembly Hall for the quarters vs Queen City. 43 Hoops holds off a late rally for a 76-69 win (up 15 at the half). Tom Schalk leads the way with 16 points. Jordan Smith and Marquel Curtis with 15 each. Estan Tyler 9 points and 8 assists.

In the semis a rematch with D1E. 26-25 D1E at the break. Ross Travis had his 2nd monster dunk of the weekend, this one over 2 defenders to change the course of the game. 68-44 43 Hoops wins. Only 18 2nd half points for D1E in a stepped up defensive effort from 43. Estan Tyler and Marquel Curtis with 13 points each. Freddie Young 6 assists and 4 steals.

Unfortunately, the reality of these long trips is the flight home. Championship game at 5:30 with a 7:10 flight out of Indianapolis forces 43 Hoops to miss the championship game. Last year this same group won the 15s.
