Team Work Wins Indiana Title

Team Work-U-15 Adidas Invitational Classic Champions

Over the weekend, Adam Vincenzo’s 2016 Team Work squad finished a perfect 9-0 on their trek to the Platinum Division championship of the Adidas Invitational Classic in Noblesville, Indiana. In bracket play, Team Work had to get by quality teams such as Hoop Dreams, Wisconsin Playground Warriors, Grand Rapids Storm, Houston Defenders and the Iowa Barnstormers. In the championship game, Team Work defeated the Compton Magic 96-88 to grab the crown. Although Medina’s Jon Teske “was a Monster all weekend,” according to Coach Vincenzo, and averaged about 14 points per game; his team “played well together, and everybody brought something different to the table,” continued Vincenzo.

The Team Work roster included: Ibi Watson (Athens), Jon Teske (Medina), Mason Baich (Dublin Jerome), Like Vargo (Dublin Jerome), Seth Fuller (Dublin Jerome), Preston Boswell (Magnolia, WV), Trey Smith (Delphos Jefferson), Micah Potter (Mentor), Drew Potter (John Glenn) and Mitch Peterson (Walsh Jesuit). In the U-16 division, the Ohio Basketball Club finished second after a 97-76 loss to Indiana Elite in the Championship Game. All-in-all, it was a great showing for the Buckeye state with 2 teams placing in such a prestigious tournament!
