: : : : : : : Congratulations West Coast Premier 15U National beating team Taurasi for the second time and winning the tournament you have made a Believer out me
: : : : : : Thanks Dad for the shoutout!! It means a lot!!
: : : : : The way the bracket was set up predicted a WCP Black vs Team Taurasi rematch. Instead, the respective National 15U teams played for 'ship with West Coast Premier National winning despite a 2 player ejection for a fight that almost occurred. This is the second time WCP National has defeated Taurasi. Taurasi played WCP Black for 3rd place with Taurasi coming out on top.
: : : : : Elite Hs division
: : : : : Champion - WCP National
: : : : : 2nd place - Cal Storm National
: : : : : 3rd place - Team Taurasi
: : : : : 4th place - WCP Black
: : : : : 5th place - Blackwater Elite
: : : : Any other teams look good out there?. Seems like there was quality. Also seems like Storm AND WC have played in every tourney. When is next major club tourney>
: : : Honest question for anyone who actually saw the games - were the older teams giving 100% (meaning the coaches - subs, who was playing, how much, etc.)?
: : : Because I have seen all four of these teams play multiple times and the older teams - especially Tuarasi - is better than the 15U.
: : : Don't get me wrong - the 15U teams are great and will really good in the coming years. But again, take Taurasi. Archer, Hardy, and the Twins can just physically overpower anyone on the younger teams.
: : : Again, just looking for info. In the end the good thing is they are all playing each other instead of avoiding each other like in April.
: : better players yes unquestionably, but a better team no you are mistaken. better players do not make a better team my friend. the younger teams play together. better chemistry more unselfish. more accountability and hunger. less ego..
: You may be right.
: But that doesn't answer the question if the older teams did everything possible to win. Many times when they are playing younger teams like that they play the bench much more than usual. Or the normal coaches don't coach.
: For example, in the Cal Sparks Memorial tourney, Taurasi was playing in the championship game at the same time as National team was playing and Quintero coached the National team and some assistant coached Taurasi.
Big congrats to WCP National for winning all their games. But what in the world is going on with WCP Black loosing to an all freshmen Storm National team? Anyone at the game that can give insights on how the game went? I wanted to catch both games Sunday but we were in the other venue. Info from those that were in the game please.
