A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!

The 11U team represented F.O.C.U.S. Basketball Academy in a spectacular display of great team basketball at the 2015 Division 1 AAU State Tournament in Lexington, KY.  Playing both sides of the ball each game they handedly defeated every opponent with unselfish offense and relentless defense. The boys started off strong with a 38 point victory (47-9) over the Shining Stars. Later in the tournament they faced their Louisville rivals GO HARD IN THE PAINT (GHITP-Black), and jumped out way ahead early. However, GHITP never gave up and kept fighting. They cut a 20 point deficit down to a 5 point deficit in the 2nd half of the game. Ultimately, our boys won, rallying on offense and defense to come out with a 9 point victory over GHITP (48-39). In the championship game we faced the Lexington Hustle. By this time our 11U team led by Miles Franklin, Will Loving- Watts, Ben Michel, Gabe Sisk, and Kobe Stoudemire, had absolutely no intention on coming home without a 3rd straight championship. They simply overwhelmed the Hustle with a 29 point victory (64 -35) and won State for the 3rd year in a row. Congratulation for a job well done.
