First Tourn. 2014 PQ Sports AAU Super Regional Powder Springs, GA                             

                                 

  PQ Sports always put on a great tournament to get all of the top teams of Atlanta to kick off their season with a chance to get AAU National qualifications out of the way.  Last season we went toe to toe with the Red Storm of Atlanta in a game that was decided by a foul at the 3 point line and an oppurtunity for us to tie or go ahead with the win. The early season pressure got to our players and ended our tournament run. We are looking forward to another great tournament.

This was a great run NCAA Certified tournament at McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia. Great Staff and the tournament was well run.

We played against some great talent in this tournament to finish with a record of 2-2 for the weekend. Our players stepped up to the challenge of playing up in this tournament and increased their level of play. The team is looking forward to playing at the 14U Elite level next season in top tournaments locally and around the country. We will be looking to add new Elite level players to our selected returning players from this season and competing in top tournaments that will continue to improve our players and give them the exposure needed for their future in basketball.

We will begin the Showcase against one of the top 14U teams in Georgia the Tucker Running Rebels on Saturday @ 8:30am at Emory University campus.

Next up will be Birmingham Ice and the Georgia Kings.

We will get the oppurtunity to step up our game play against #4 Kentucky Spice Gators on Saturday 24th @ 5:15pm in pool play. From what we are hearing, the Gators have great size in the paint and perimeter shooters that can shot your lights out if you don't stay in their face. Well, so do we. Looking forward to competing against them at Xavier University. Nothing like a college atmosphere for a good game. Our players should love it.

  Great!!! Tournament this past weekend. We faced some good competition to continue to grow as a team. We finished 1-1 in pool play as the #6 seed with a bye into the second round going into bracket play. 

We had great play from our starting line up Torey Zanders PF,C who averaged 16 points a game with the footwork around the basket that even a monegoose couldn't keep up with, DJ Williams PG, SG averaged 12 points, 4 steals, 6 assists was able to handle his business as always getting to the basket at will and finishing with contact from defenders around the basket and setting up players for scores in the paint and on the perimeter.  

Another key element to our success this weekend was from Christian Pasley G, SF who brings the strength and tenacity on the court for our team.  We did not have this key element of our team in our first tournament due to a wrist injury and now he makes our team much better as a unit. He can shut down defenders and he has a sense for getting to the basket with his strength.

Zion Cain PF,C gave us the size that we need inside to create the disadvantage in the paint for other teams. His drop step and hussle in the paint is a much needed part of our team in order to continue being successful moving forward.

In this tournament, the Georgia Red Storm had to contend with the balance of our players and our strong defensive efforts. In our earlier meetings this season we fell to them in key games and this weekend we lost to them in the second round by 3 (49-46) that should have went into overtime. The oppurtunity for us to win the game was there, but we missed key free throws and our turnovers kept it close. We are sure that we will meet again.

 We are looking forward to our next tournament and contending for our first Championship of the season.

After merging two of our 7th grade teams and practicing 2 times together, we finished our first tournament of the season in the Semi-finals against a good team. The highlight of the tournament, we beat one of the top 8th grade teams in the tournament by 11 points to make it to the semi-finals. This shows what we are capable of doing this season. It helps to improve our team by scrimmaging our Georgia Stars 8th grade team at the end of every practice to prepare for game time.

     Great game against a well established team that has been together for a number of years. We had some great team play from our players who are getting together for the first time. We are in the process of establishing a competitive team that will be able to win tournaments at the highest level. Good Job Stars!!!!!!!! 

4. Georgia Stars  39  Matthew Titans 27 

     This game was well played with a rotation that the Titans couldn't handle down the stretch.  The Titans fought hard to keep up with the tempo of our team, but they couldn't keep up with the size that we had around the basket.
