Day 2 got off to a hot start. After our first set of morning stations, gameplay began.  The first set of games were as follows:

Heat v. Magic            Celtics v. Knicks            Bulls v. Pacers            Nets v. Sixers

This game set gave us our first look at Top 15 prospect, Keith Frazier, with the Bulls. Their team looked dominant all day.  Another standout team that showed well, out of the West, were the Clippers. The Clippers took part in the second set of games:

Suns v. Clippers          Spurs v. Thunder          Mavs v. Lakers          Nuggets v. Warriors

Both the Clippers and Bulls looked unbeatable throughout games sets and the situation tournament.

Some of the standout players from Day 2 were:

Keith Frazier

Alex Robinson

D’Angelo Allen

Albert Owens

All helped lead their teams to top records in their respective Conferences.

Day 3 began with morning stations, followed by more games and, Coach Nate Martin led, Station 14.  This is Five-Star’s Athletic station; where the campers go through numerous drills to help improve flexibility, speed, agility, quickness and strength.  The campers really pushed through after a long, jam-packed weekend to show their desire to improve.  (Station 14 pics- Seen Below)

This weekend Five-Star Staff, led by Owner/CEO Leigh Klein, and over 200 of Texas’ top players assembled at the Duncanville Fieldhouse, just outside of Dallas, for Five-Star’s 2nd Annual Super Session. This first day is proving day at camp, proving to the coaches, the fans, the media and maybe more importantly the competition that you are here to compete and work on your game.  

Day 1 is reserved for stations and tryouts. Stations has been a trademark of Five-Star for over 45 years now and is the backbone of our camp curriculum. Here are some photos from Day 1 Station Sets:

The Final two days of camp were anything but boring. With a full days schedule on day 3, the campers woke at 7 a.m., ate breakfast and went right to work. Day 3 brought stations, intense playoff games and of course the fan favorite All-Star game to cap off the day.

This camp’s All-Star game brought us many “ooos and ahhs,” the campers surely gave us a show. Two individual standouts representing the NCAA were Saxon Thomas, who dazzled the crowd with his ankle breaking crossovers and no look passes, and Patrick Howell, who simply dominated the paint, scoring 10 straight points in the second quarter.

As for the NBA players, Liam Fukushima  and Aaron Jones showed major potential, with Liam’s tremendous court vision and Aaron’s pure athleticism, in particular, his one-hand, throw down in the fourth quarter, that lifted the fans to their feet and  helped guide the white team to a blowout victory.

Here are our two All-Star teams and action shots from the game:

This week’s Five-Star Basketball camp brings us to Baylor University in Waco, TX, home of the legendary Bears.  There is always a lot of hype around the camp and this year is no different. Despite the rain showers, Campers showed up in large numbers to check in, eager to get camp started.

“Every year, I can’t wait to come to camp because I know I’m going to get better and push myself,” Said Liam Fukushima a 17 year old senior.

The Rest of day 1 consisted of stations and tryouts, giving both the coaches and the players an equal opportunity to get acquainted with each other.

“The Coaches are always in it with us, they don’t just teach us and wonder off, they really want to see us improve,” said Stefan Vidovic a 17 year old senior.

 At the end of Day 1 the coaches drafted and selected their teams, filling day 2 with intense games. Both the Spurs and the Lakers put on an impressive display of basketball with standout players Sherman Long, who demonstrated great point guard play, seeing the court very well, putting his teammates in great positions to score the ball and Stefan Vidovic who dominated offensively, look primed to go far in the playoff during the remainder of camp.

Here are some of the campers that have stood out thus far:




We are now looking forward to Day 3 and 4’s playoffs. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the first two days:
