24/7 GTHING ALL STAR CLASSIC.


Linwood, New Jersey - This year was the first time in four years I was able to do the 24/7 All Star Classic closer to home. In the past, Gthing All Star Classic was held more West of were South Jersey is located. It fell under the J.E.M Classic which is held and ran by owner Mike Melton, who operates Basketball Spotlight, which is the boy's side of the AAU circuit. 

This year was a little different, at the last minute we where able to put together a rising 8th graders game. In a two day span I was fortunate enough to get some good talent to come up in play in the 4th Annual Event, wasn't not sure how the it would turn out, put by the sound of things and the excitement it brought we will now be adding a rising 8th graders game followed by the rising 9th graders game.

This year it was my goal to attempt to put together a true North versus South All Star Event, I was only three players short for the South to really make it a official North versus South game. We had players from VA, MD, DE, come up on I-95 to attend, some of the top programs on the East Coast were participate in this high level All Star Game. On the North side it was what we expected it to be, fancy and fast. The North team was made up of some Exodus NY, Sparks NJ, IExcel NY, Shoreshots NJ, Team Miller players, while the South was made up of Team Sol MD, Team Takeover MD, BBA NJ, Maryland Finest MD, players. Both sides brought a lot of energy to the game, and that's what we wanted. We know everything in AAU normally starts in the AM, so we were trying to give a later start since they been playing all summer long and getting up at the crack of dawn.
