“More final stats from the Big Time. These speak for themselves; they are for the entire tournament, through 620 games played overall. Of course, most of these players played in more than 5 games, some as many as six, seven or eight games. Of course what this means is that a high scoring average (such as that compiled by Mike Gordy as an individual, or by the Pump N Run team) which was held for as many as 7 or 8 games is certainly remarkable, because it indicates a high-degree of consistency by a player or team that went deep into the tournament, and as anyone who knows statistics in basketball knows, it’s a lot harder to keep a high average up over time, especially against consistently tough competition.”

In Las Vegas the boys were very impressive and have been constantly bombarded with literature from top Division I colleges in the country.
Note, the HAWKS had 2 teams in the tourney and the Red team was made up of sophomores. They were playing in the tournament against older competition and still accomplished a .500 record (2-2). Just wait until next year!!
Congratulations to both teams for an excellent showing!
