Bulls Premier Team Gets First National Test In King James Summer Showcase

07/19/2012 9:46 AM - The 17U Bulls Premier boys basketball team played the Central Kentucky Storm on Friday afternoon to open up the “live” period in front of college coaches at the Waukegan Fieldhouse. The Bulls came out of the gate on an 18-3 run led by Sean Dwyer (Staggs HS). The Storm climbed back into the game but were never able to catch up. Bulls Premier led the whole way and won 63-54. Dwyer and Danny Leach (Timothy Christian) were solid the entire game.

On Saturday in their second game the Bulls Premier team faced Nike’s MoKan Elite squad from Kansas. Again the team started off very strong with Alex Majewski (Brother Rice) finding his groove early. Kyle Bogler (Schaumburg) got the team into the offense while the bigs battled hard inside on the defensive end. After a back and forth game, the Bulls came out on the short end because of breakdown on a defensive rebound. MoKan Elite capitalized with a tip in with 3-seconds remaining to take the lead by one. Unfortunately, a turnover on the last play prevented the Premier team from getting a shot to win. Final score 59-58.

After a hard fought second game, the Bulls took out all frustration on Prymetyme from Rockford, IL. It was a complete team effort with everyone scoring for the Bulls. Final score 77-46.

In the final day of the tournament the Bulls Premier team faced BTI Double Pump (CA). This game was the tale of two halves. In the first half, the Double Pump was on fire leading by 15 at one point. The Bulls stayed together, tightened up on defense and eventually found their shot. In the second half, Jimmy Lundquist (Schaumburg) sparked the comeback with consecutive threes and finished the game with 6 three pointers. Majewski outplayed everyone on the court with an inside and outside attack. A bad foul call on a three pointer allowed Double Pump to tie the game and send it into OT. A couple of costly mistakes in OT ended the Bulls run in a tough 77-72 loss.

In the last game of the tournament the Bulls Premier team gave a complete team effort. Again everyone was able to get in the scorebook, and the team came up victorious with a 75-55 final. Highlighted by 7 three pointers from Danny Leach.

This tournament proved to be a good test for the Premier team going against top national talent. The Bulls will be back in action July 20-22 at the Joy of the Game Tournament which is part of the Chicago Summer Classic.
