It was quite a remarkable year for the Earl Watson Elite travel teams and West Coast Elite Basketball events company.
“The opportunity to impact and change kids lives in a positive fashion is what we strive for everyday,” president Ryan Silver said. “We are excited about the progress our players, employees and staff have made. Moving kids onto college is the No. 1 goal.”
The Earl Watson Elite 17-under U.A.A. team won the Fab48 tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada behind the strong play of Cal commit Jemarl Baker, Cal commit Juhwan Harris-Dyson, a.k.a. Juhwan HD; Ira Lee, and top 2018 prospect Miles Norris.
The squad became the second ever West Coast based program to capture the prestigious championship.
The 16-under and 15-under U.A.A. teams both advanced to the semifinals of the Fab48.
Nico Mannion, one the country’s best players in the class of 2020 and rising sophomore prospect Kyle Owens (Crespi) were the leaders of a team that won the Under Armour 15-under Open Division championship in Atlanta.
All three teams finished ranked in the top 15 in the country by several publications.
West Coast Elite basketball, the events arm started by Ryan Silver (grassroots basketball version of Dana White!!!), completed camps, showcases and tournaments in 18 states throughout the past Spring and Summer evaluation periods.
Countless college coaches from across the country attended these events further maximizing the outstanding exposure West Coast Elite basketball provides.
“Our job is to put the kids first and put them in situations that bring them close to college coaches to earn athletic scholarships to further their education,” Silver said. “We can’t wait for 2016-2017. We think it could be the best ever.”
