In addition to their 6th place finish at the AAU Nationals in Ft Wayne, IN, the Hoopsters went 7-1 and finished 3rd at the Gym Ratz Nationals. The win was highlighted by a 32 point win over the defending national champions, Indy Storm. The Hoopsters were led by AJ Bennett, Tre Watkins, Jeremiah Keene, Gavin Baker, Will Chatman and Sean Marks.

Also, the Riverside Flyers bounced back from disappointing pool play to win the Classic Bracket at the D-II AAU Nationals.
