AAU Nationals underway

MN Heat Elite 16s are in Orlando for AAU Nationals. Here's what they've done in their 1st 2 pool games (last one is later today)

Game 1 vs Team Breakdown. Team Breakdown is the 3rd ranked 16U team in Florida according to a Florida publication. They gave the Heat a warm welcome by opening up a 20-2 lead after 4 minutes. Heat fought back to 8 going to the 4th quarter. Rob Daul with a hoop to tie it and then an assist to Spencer Pankonin for a 2 point Heat lead with 1:10 left. After Team Breakdown tied it, Riley West called for a charge (tough call). Team Breakdown scores again but Max Watts with a clutch jumper to tie the game. Clock says .1 seconds left but the officials set the clock to 1.5 seconds. Team Breakdown inbounds to halfcourt and fires a prayer for the 56-53 win. Ouch.

2nd pool game was a 77-46 blowout of Team Hope (Louisiana).

Last pool game for the Heat is today against 2-0 Wave Basketball from Virginia.

MN Glory 17s open play today as well.
