Great weekend at Kenner!

Nike Pro City

Hoyanation and friends, it was a great weekend at Nike Pro City Kenner League.  Believe it or not I missed last weekend's games, but thanks to twitter I all the information I need from those games played last weekend.  I also missed Friday's games.  Now, that was truly my fault because I had forgotten there were games that day, and I was right in Georgetown at Georgetown Players, a sports store on Wisconsin Avenue getting some Hoyas gear. 

It was good to see my Hoyas in action and for the most part all of them played well.  I'm really excited about the Hoyas big men especially senior Henry Sims and sophomore Moses Ayegba.  I see more mature and hungry Sims.  In Ayegba I see a very hard worker who is relentless on the boards on both ends of the court, and runs the floor like a deer.  I think Sims is ready to get the starting nod this season along with sophomore Nate Lubick in the paint.  Whatever the case, these two big men are proving and determined day by day to be worthy of starting for the Hoyas this upcoming season.  Also in the paint we have the youngins Mikael Hopkins and Tyler Adams

These are two young gifted and hard nosed big men that will also be a force to be reckoned with in due time.  The Tombs looked very poised on Saturday, but let this one get away from them.  The couldn't hold off  Jeff Green.  Jeff Green did not play with the Tombs this time, he was the opponent.  The Tombs were playing great the whole game with freshman Jabril Trawick running the point and controlling the tempo of the game. One thing that I did learn from this game is that the young Tombs are poised, confident and determined.  They did not get shaken as expected in the game from many people. 

They shut a lot of mouths up with their poise in Saturday's game.  I'd like to give a shout out to Coach Rodney Turner and his team Team Turner.  Hollis "Hollywood" Thompson is the lone Hoya who plays for Coach Turner.  Hollis played well and Team Turner came out with the victory.  Another Len Elmore sighting in McDonough gymnasium.  At least Mr. Elmore will know what to say about our Hoyas and especially the five freshmen on ESPN or CBS.  Sophomore Markel Starks has done a terrific job running the point guard position this summer and continues to do so.  He's working hard on his shooting.  I do know Markel can shoot the rock consistently, so this will come and when it does lookout.  Because of his quickness Markel's on the ball defense is spectacular. 

This will be the last weekend of the Kenner league regular season.  The playoffs will start next week.  The two top teams in the league are Team Turner and Beyond Belief.  The Tombs are right behind.  If you can come out this weekend that would be great.  See you there at Kenner.  Hoyasaxa

Shout out to Len Elmore for coming to check our Hoyas out at the Nike Pro City Kenner League
