16U Elite Team Travels to Nike Sweet 16 Qualifier Events

UBC’s 16U Elite team has the privilege of competing in two Nike Sweet 16 Qualifier events this past month (May 9-11, 2014 and May 26-28, 2014). The events were held in Dallas and in Minneapolis, respectively. 16U Elite held their own against some of the top 16U teams in the country. The events marked the first time Utah Basketball Club’s teams have competed in such events, which came by way of a special invitation from Nike.

16U Elite head coach Michael O’Connor said, “the two nike tournaments in May gave us a very good idea of the level of play we’ll be facing in years to come. Our players rose to the occasion and showed well. The tournaments gave us a chance to prepare for a busy July, when games count the most.”

16U Elite will compete in Los Angeles the first NCAA evaluation period in July and then round out the month in Las Vegas for the final two NCAA evaluation periods. For more information on UBC’s 16U Elite team, please contact Coach O’Connor at moconnor@utahbasketballclub.org.
