Team Power is Ready for the Test
The Augusta based Team Power 16u AAU team has been competitive on the national stage for years. The team features most of the area's best rising juniors. And session 1 of the "ABR Live Summer Send-off" gave the Power the chance to test its group against the area's top 17u team, the Southern Kings.
The Kings prevailed. But the Power represented itself well and seems poised for an impressive run during July's evaluation period. While Augusta Christian guard Madison Williams and Monroe (Albany, GA) High School forward Napoleon Harris showed flashes, Westside guard Damontrez Hawes competed fiercely throughout the evening. The Patriot standout did a little bit of everything, burying threes, making mid range jump shots, attacking the basket, and defending the ball.
Coach Greg Williams' squad will take on the formidable Florida Vipers in the Atlanta area Thursday to begin a month of ultra competitive basketball. Stay tuned for updates about area teams and for the July 14-15 "ABR Live Summer Send-off: Session 2" schedule.
