The first day of the third Florida Session at UCF was a packed house; with over 110 girls and boys combined. The competition seemed to be elevated from the previous session. This session had something the previous was lacking, some exceptional young talent; in the first day we had brought up a couple of players from the NCAA Division.
Early in the second the Suns looked to be the favorite in the NBA division with the names of Stacey Thomas and 6’5 Jacob Kessler. But as the games began to play out it seemed that the Heat were to be the new favorites with small, but explosive, playmaking guard, Angel Rivera; at that point it was clear that height was not necessarily need to win games. As the rest of the games are played out we will shortly see who will be the number one seed in the Day 3 playoffs, but does that really mean they are the best? I think not.
For the second session we had Strength and Conditioning Coach Carlo Voltolini, from the Italian Leagues AC Siena Basketball Club. He has ran station 14 and helped push the campers to their full athletic potential. He has also helped to better prepare the campers for games and stations post-meal. After breakfast, lunch and dinner Carlo is vital in preparing the kids bodies to perform at their peak after downtime.
After the situation tournament is played we will break any ties that are left for seeding, then proceed the the playoffs where we will crown our Champion!!
Some notable players to look out for so far:
