The Southwest Showcase was held at the American Sports Center on Feb 28th – March 1st, 2015. This event was one of the most competitive events this AAU season as the 8th Grade Gold Division was stacked with all the top teams from Arizona. Several of the 8th grade teams are ranked amongst the best teams on the West Coast. Javon Blacksher from Diplomats/I-10 Celtics was named the tournament MVP. Blacksher has made a strong case for entering high school in September as the top ranked player in Arizona.
Coaches: Remember the SWS Main Event is scheduled for March 27th-March 30th at Inspire Courts. Top 8th grade teams should participate in the 15U Gold Division. Also, for the 4th-8th grade teams, the SWS Summer Championship is scheduled for April 25th – 26th at Avondale. This is the LAST Southwest Showcase event for the youth until December – 2015. Request the weekend off from your normal leagues.
