Brawl for the Ball/Best in the Midwest 2017 preliminary schedule (update as of 7/19/17)

Well, here we go for the final tournament and by far the biggest one of our year!  This tournament has combined with one from Fort Wayne to even be bigger than it was!  Remember, you cannot interact with the D-1 coaches in attendance and they will have a different entrance/exit.  In addition, no one can sit on the bench that is not registered by the NCAA.  The bracket schedules have not been posted yet, but I will post the pool play so far:

After the Holiday…

It looks like we will have to not practice tonight and resume after the holiday.  Many of our guys are still very much tied up with their school ball teams.  We have always sought to not interfere with that in June.  That said, the GR tournament is coming up quickly in July, so practices will be that much more important and crucial.  The gym should still be open and available for those that want to shoot tonight.  More to come…

Practice this week

All,

It is with great disappointment that I have to report I have NOT heard from many of you regarding HS scheduling in June.  This is YOUR responsibility to report out on, so that we can determine the next course of action for practices.  We still have Mott allocated for practice on Tuesday evenings, but we will NOT have a formal practice tonight.  I need to hear from EVERY PLAYER that has not talked to me (I have heard from all Holly kids, Fenton, and Kearsley only) with your schedule as you know it (practices, games).  Send an email to midmichiganlakers@gmail.com.  Thank you
