Nike Nationals Tournament update

North Augusta, S.C. – IM in OC checked in after this morning’s games ended, which is round three at this prominent tournament.

In Division A, Boo Williams is 3-0, with Elizabeth Williams the high scorer for her team. West Coast Premier is 2-1, and Casey Swain is a standout player so far. The Illinois Hustle is also 2-1.

Division B is stacked, with the likes of the 3-0 Tennessee Flight and Essence, also 3-0. The Flight is lead by Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, CA. In the first three games, she’s had 22, 25 and 16 points, respectively. The Cal Storm is 2-1 and is lead by Kelsey Garvey with 26, 22 and 15 points, respectively.

Division C features the Cyfair Shock, which is 3-0, and the Minnesota Tartan, also 3-0. The 2-1 Cal Swish’s only loss was to Cyfair, which IM says is one of the best teams he’s seen this summer. Nneka Ogumwike (who’s sister Nnemkadi was Stanfords’s superstar freshman last season), is simply “a stud” in everything, IM says. Lindsay Sherbert has lead things for the Swish.

Division D has two 3-0 teams in the Philly Belles and a team from Fairfax, VA. The Belles are lead by Maggie Lucas (11, 14 and 18 points so far), and Fairfax is lead by Kelsey Wolfe (12, 15 and 23 points).

There’s a big showdown tonight, and IM promised he’ll call me afterward to give me the blow-by-blow.

We’re goin all the way til July 31, baby………………..
