Just Ice beats Emerald City Seattle by 30

Just Ice beats X-treme from Seattle by 25

Just Ice beats Grandview by 2 points on heroic free throws from Josh Pruitt

Just Ice beats Thurston by 12 points

Just Ice loses very close game (which ended up being best game in Oregon Prep History) to 12th ranked Team Washington (which had beaten every team in tourney by average of over 40 points)

Robert Franks solidified himself as the best player in the Washington/Oregon area as he averaged 23 points and 19 rebounds and 5 assists and 5 blocks in the very tough tournament. Robert had 28 rebounds in the championship game to go with his 24 points.

Newcomer Nate (from Kingsway) completely put himself on the map with his totally outstanding point guard work. Nate averaged 22 points 9 assists 7 steals and put on a complete dribbling exhibition the entire tournament.

Collin Moore: Played some very good basketball and played extremely hard defense the entire tourney. Hit some big layups in our semifinal game and really solidified our bench with his saaviness the entire tourney.

Allen: Had an awesome tournament and really looked poise out on the court. Hit some big 3 pointers and played some of the best ball he has played with Just Ice. Secured the two guard spot and really rebounded well and played great defense and his shooting was just phenomenal.

Josh: Was an all around force again, he was asked to play power forward and really banged with a ton of players bigger than him. Josh went to the basket very hard and really learned how to compete at this much higher level.

Ansel: Starting off slow but had his best games in the semifinals and the championship game where he grabbed 7 rebounds and really helped us with his toughness in these two crucial games. Made a nice driving layup as well.

Jack: Struggled early against this much higher competition and really tried very hard to get a rhythm going. Came up big in the championship game with a very key layup at the end of the game. Definitely a learning experience for a great player like Jack.

Speedy: Wow 6th grader played his butt off in the games he competed in. Was very confident going to the basket in the first two games and really pushed the ball up the court with speed and precision. Great experience for SPeedy.

Julien: Was a great combination with Speedy as the two of them made some nice give and go's to each other in the first two games. Really gained a lot of experience suiting up for such very big games and the experience will definitely help going forward.

Garet: Great experience for Garet as well, played his best ball in the Monday game as he scored 6 points and grabbed a few rebounds and gained tons of experience playing in these very big games.

 

Overall it was a fantastic experience and all of the teams complimented Just Ice on being an awesome club team that will compete against any level of competition. We received a couple of invites to big tourneys in Seattle because of our fearless, disciplined play on the court.
