We have been very busy this spring with 35 players in our program but I wanted to provide an update from our 3 teams for this spring. All 3 of our teams have been playing in the PNAAU Spring League put together by Mike and Jane Connors. It is a great spring league and I highly recommend it for other AAU teams.
North City 16U –
The team finished with a 7-1 spring league record with its lone loss coming on the first game of the spring season. Coach Eddie George is excited about the progress of the team. This past weekend, the team won 3 games in one day, all by 15+ points which also included dunks from Brian Zehr (Jackson) and Masamba Njadoe (Shorecrest).
Two weeks ago, the team went 3-1 in the NW Premier Spring Showcase, taking 5th place. They lost to the eventual champions of the tournament (Oregon D1 Ambassadors) by 5points in a tight game. The team beat RSB/A+, Idaho Select and Team Jones (Oregon).
