The Utah Pump N Run won the Gold division championship in the Super 64 adidas
tournament. Along the way they trashed the Dream Vision with top recruits Haws
and Andrus by 20 points. The Prospects lost in the first round game of their
not so Fab 48 run. Top prospects don't always amount to good play on the
court. Takes good players with great coaching to get the job done on the court.
That is why UPNR always does well with whoever they get. 95 college
scholarships for it's players since 2004 and counting... Just ask the boys
from Dream Vision what good team play will do to you! UPNR has done this for
years. While this may be the Prospects best year yet it fails to mention that
it is the only year of their existence at the 17U elite level.
AAU teams = allot of offense and very little defense. Most of these games are
glorified all-star games. I do however, believe that the Utah teams do play
more defense than all the other states combined. Go Utah.
Mr. Gurney doesn't have facts straight. Dastrup does not play for Highland
High in Gilbert, AZ. He plays for Mountain View in Mesa... always has. He and
Toolson are friends, play for rival high school teams, played club ball together
last summer, and same club this summer for this tournament only. Dastrup has
played all summer for Cal Supreme club team. He's playing for both club
teams this week in Vegas, but in different, simultaneous tournaments.
Uh ... let's not count our chickens before they are hatched, folks.
Chapman is still a very long shot for BYU; all credible sources have him
strongly leaning towards the PAC-12, probably UCLA or Arizona. He would be a
huge get, however -- he can play the 3 as well as the 4 and would be a great fit
with Rose's uptempo style of play. Let's hope. We're in better
shape for Dastrup, but no guarantees here either. One of the two would be
terrific, both would be a big time recruiting coup, to go along with the current
commits. Glory Road??? Let's get back to the NCAAs first, and win a few
games there. As for the "white guys" comment ... last time I checked,
we only see blue here, right?Go Cougars!
lol. Yeah, the new version of "Glory Road" would feature five white
guys. The future looks bright for basketball in the state of Utah (and for
Haws, Breckott, Dastrup, Toolson, Nixon OH MY!!! Added to Eric Mika, and Nick
Emery??? How awesome will that team be??? They would be making movies about
their accomplishments in 20 to 30 years... The new "Glory Road" bunch.
