Now that the AAU season is officially wrapped up for the Spring/Summer, the Northwest represented well. Seattle Rotary, ICP Elite, and Team Fast 16′s (they played their way into Peach Jam) all represented the Northwest in the EYBL circuit. Rotary and ICP didn’t make it to Peach Jam but they did bounce back in July. Team Fast 16’s did make it to Peach Jam but didn’t come home with a championship.
Elite 24 won Hal Pastner’s event to kick off the summer period in Vegas and had a nice summer finishing 41-9 during the AAU season. ECBA also represented well and won a championship in Oregon.
Seattle Rotary won the Las Vegas Classic, beating Mac Irvine who had a bunch of 5 star and 4 star players. They aslo beat the Oakland Soldiers who as well had a team filled with 5 star and 4 star players. There were probably 6 future NBA players on the both of the teams combined that the Rotary beat in the final four of the Las Vegas Classic.
The Northwest Panthers and I-5 elite represented the Northwest as well in various tournaments across the country. All in all there was great quality basketball played and players from the Northwest put their names on the map picking up scholarship offers across the country.
