43 Hoops Rocks Milwaukee

The 43 Hoops 16s won the NY2LA Summer Jam in Milwaukee. Jake White with a 15 footer at the horn to win it. Thomas Schalk named the 16U MVP. Coach Al Harris and the 17s lost to Team Detroit in the final by 3 points as they continued their hot streak (probably the hottest 17U team in Minnesota right now). They got revenge for their loss in Chicago by beating All Iowa Attack Red along the way. Net Gain lost in the semis so MN fans didn't get the profile matchup desired. Cole Stefan still struggling through an injured knee for them.

Recruiting Notes
Jordan Reetz with a big tournament. He now has D1s on his trail. Montana, Quinnipiac, UNI, Loyola, UW-Milwaukee on his trail and earned an offer from Northeastern (where Watertown-Mayer's Matt Janning is playing).

Clay Horne earned an offer from Mankato but D1s are now after him. Denver especially but also Western Michigan, Western Illinois, and Quinnipiac are showing interest. Winona State is very interested but with the possibly of CJ Erickson coming back from Evansville, that's a wrench. Personally, I think they've probably given up on getting Alec Brown with the handful of D1 offers he's received in the last week.

Vinard Birch also with a wonderful tourney in Milwaukee. Western Michigan, Drake, Western Illinois, Bucknell and Southern Indiana on him.

Southern Indiana is also after Brett Ervin, but his good play at the end of the period is also pushing him to D1 status.

The name that has flown under the radar is Elliot Owusu. He was even better in Milwaukee than Chicago according to coach Harris. He held down Iowa commit Zach McCabe in Milwaukee. Western Illinois and especially Mt. St. Mary's are now interested in him.
