The Arizona All-Stars Basketball Academy Club Team won 4 out of 5 games on Saturday, July 9, 2016. It was a great day to evaluate the program's 6th and 7th graders who played three games at Supreme Courts where the Just4Hoopin league takes place. The All-Stars 6th grade team plays in the 6th/7th division and is currently undefeated with a 6 - 0 record. The All-Stars 7th grade team lost its only league game but proceeded to win two games at the Inspire Courts tournament where the team filled in for two games.
The success of the Academy has to do with a very disciplined approach to the game on both ends of the court. Utilizing multiple defenses as well as deploying an offensive strategy that is based on what defense the team is facing is resulting in the success that the program is having to date. At this age group, it is rare to find teams that can adjust to the multiple defenses that the All-Stars have become known to deploy. Whether it is the zone or man-to-man coverage, the Arizona All-Stars' defensive scheme is a hard nut to crack due to the extreme defensive discipline that is taught at the academy.
When it comes to the All-Stars offense, the team relies on its hard earned shooting skills, ability to attack the open lanes as well as the heavy emphasis on teamwork that deploys excellent passing skills that is hard to find at this age group.
Once the All-Stars players improve on both their offense and defense rebounding, the program will be unstoppable.
