Hoop Dreams 17U Wins KnoxVegas Heat After Team Thad Decides Championship Game Isn't for Their Program

The Hoop Dreams 17U team won the KnoxVegas Heat AAU tournament last weekend after Team Thad decided the championship game was not in the best interest of their program.

Team Thad, which torched the nets from long range, beat Hoop Dreams 68-41 in pool play.

The two teams then advanced to the championship game but Team Thad decided they didn't want to risk injury against a team they had already beaten so handily.

I guess there is a greater risk of injury in the championship game as opposed to the other 4-5 games during the weekend.

Personally, I think it's a slap in the face to Hoop Dreams and the KnoxVegas Heat event to forfeit the championship game. Team Thad knew the schedule and knew what they signed up for.

Team Manimal 17U made it to the semifinals before falling to Hoop Dreams in a close game.
