Up North Challenge: MML gets first tourney under its belt

BELLAIRE, Michigan — Three MML teams made the trip to Bellaire this weekend for the Up North Challenge. The teams competed hard, and came away with some confidence to take to the rest of this season’s tournaments.

Here are your MVPs for the weekend:

U-17 team: Andrew Robeson, forward, Lansing Catholic

“Robey” was a total beast in four games for the Lakers, and was good for a double-double for the weekend. He led the team in team in rebounds and helped take the sting out of the absence of 6-4 forward Nathan Sauvola. Robeson just edged out his high school teammate, Zach Hurth, for the weekend’s MVP. Robeson reminds many of former Laker Mike Repovz (Central Michigan).

U-16 team: Cory Jones, forward, Flint Southwestern

Jones was a monster on the glass, and showed tremendous touch around the rim. Jones is just one part of a very formidable frontline with Marcus Forward and Rayshon Thomas.

U-15 team: J.D. Tisdale, guard, Flint Northern

Tisdale was the motor for the 15s all weekend. In the team’s first game, Tisdale had six assists in the first half. He led the team in both scoring and assists and proved to be a matchup problem for opponents all weekend.

    Thanks for a great tournament, especially getting the accomodations set up at Shanty Creek. Next time you need to have officials who are able to keep up with the games. In three years of AAU tournaments, these were, by far, the most poorly officiated games I’ve attended. Many of the officials were out of shape and whipped half way through the day, so they were missing or guessing at far too many calls. There was also way too much back and forth with coaches, players and the crowd. A more professional officiating crew would really help.

    Good to hear Mr. Jones had a nice weekend. His high school coach just does not seem to have him on the floor enough for him to get started. He is always fun to watch.
