IBT Middle School Preview Set for Saturday

One sure sign the middle school hoops season is upon us is the annual tip off of local basketball previews. Returning for their third year, the Intense Basketball Training Academy (IBT) will be hosting their 2015 Middle School Preview event this Saturday from 11:00am until 6:30pm at Wellington High School in Columbus. As was the case in years past, the event is loaded with talent as many of the area’s best middle school programs are set to participate.  Saturday’s event will include ten, 45 minute matchups between some of the top boy’s and girl’s middle school basketball programs in central Ohio.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with IBT, the organization has been training many of central Ohio’s top basketball prospects for several years.  Among the program’s many alumni are Seth Towns, Matt Moyer, Kalob Wesson, Nick Ward and Rob Brandenburg, all of whom received division I scholarships. Built on a primus that “hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard,” the IBT team of Renny Tyson, Lamar Thornton, Mike Petrie and Coach Artie Taylor strive to develop a respect for hard work with in a family atmosphere. 

In addition to events like the preview, IBT Academy offers various basketball training options including individual, small group, team training and college “grind” sessions.  For additional information about the IBT program, visit their website at Stay tuned to Buckeye Prep for a post event recap.  Below is the event schedule.
