The temperature rose in Coral Springs, FL this week as Five-Star came to town for our 3rd annual Super Session.  This is our first of four nationwide Super Sessions this summer; where attempt to bring some of the most promising and talented players from the region in to learn and compete at the highest level.

This sessions talent is some of the best that Florida and the south region has to offer; each showing the ability and promise to play at the next level.

Our standout player thus far has been Dwayne Bacon (Rising Junior- IMG Academy) who had officially received offers from FSU, Louisville, Texas, Tennessee and Oklahoma State; with interest also coming from at least another 15 High Major Schools; Harold Givens (Class 2014- Faith Baptist, 6’8) who has reclassified and is looking for new offers as a 2014 graduate. Harold has spent most of his summer months playing AAU with Team Breakdown and coach Gillion. He has shown his versatility as a Wing/Forward, being able to handle the ball, shoot from the outside and still possess the athletic ability to play down low and rebound. Coaches this week have been impressed with his play and is a top contender for the coveted Most Outstanding Player award. 

As for league play this week we had some great games and competition.  Two teams have stood out thus far. Both the Bulls and Spurs are undefeated after two days of gameplay and the Situation Tournament. The Bulls are leading the East division with, Harold Givens and sharpshooter, Enrique Lafuente (Gulliver Prep).  The Spurs are first in the West division lead by, a Five-Star regular,Melvin Brooks (Cardinal Gibbons) and Lawerence Barnes (Coral Springs Christian). After four games the Standings are as follows:


  1. Bulls
