ASGR League Design Drawing Praise

The summer of 2015 will have an extra spark thanks to the new All Star Girls Report Summer League. The league will feature 32 elite teams in each age group, for 17U, 16U and 15U. The best of the best will compete throughout the summer, with the League crowning its champions at the Summer Basketball Playoff in Charlotte at the end of July.

When the concept was announced, it immediately received a positive reaction from the summer circuit participants.

“This is going to be a great league for a lot of very, very competitive teams that might not have a shoe contract,” said Muhsin Muhammad, the former NFL standout who now works with the NC Spartans program. “Our girls love to compete, and they want to play against the best competition possible. This league is going to give them that chance.”

“We are very excited about this opportunity,” Scott Hazelton of MASS Rivals added. “You have a chance to play against top notch clubs, and there will be teams from all over the country. We’re up in the Northeast, so we wouldn’t normally see top teams from places like California or Idaho or Alabama.”

Each team in the ASGR Summer League will play three regular season games. These games will be scheduled on the days  leading up to the traditional major ASGR events, including the tournaments in Raleigh, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas. The Summer League games will be separate from these main tournaments. Each League team will play in the Summer Basketball Playoff, with the regular season contests used for seeding purposes.

“I think the format for the league is very cool,” said Hazelton. “It doesn’t exclude anyone. I think it’s a very, very smart set up because everyone can still be involved in the main events. The teams that are not in the league still have an opportunity to play against the elite teams.”

The 2015 titles will then be determined in Charlotte, where the intensity level should be at an all time high.
“The kids love to be able to see where they are with their game, so they are very excited about this opportunity,” said Coach Clinton Lassiter of the Boston Showstoppers. “I think having this national championship at the end of the summer has helped the girls start to prepare both mentally and physically.”
“This is going to give our girls a chance to measure themselves against the very best in a very, very exciting atmosphere,” noted Muhammad. “Our ultimate goal is to maximize their ability to go to the school of their choice, and playing at this level, and playing in front of the college coaches, is going to help them reach that goal.”
The All Star Girls Report was launched by White in 1995, and it has been providing the nation’s most accurate player ratings for the past 20 years. White’s Top Ten All American Camp has produced 175 McDonald’s All-Americans since 2001, and he spent 15 years serving as a grassroots consultant for major brands such as adidas, Reebok and FILA. White, who currently serves on the McDonald’s All-American Selection Committee, successfully launched the Michael T. White Signature Shoe and Clothing Line in 2008.

The fact that the event is being run by the experienced ASGR staff has been a major selling point with the travel programs.

“They have a reputation for running great events. They are second to none in that regard,” Hazelton said. “When you look at what they do with the Deep South Classic and their other events, you know that the organization of the league is going to be very, very good.”

“We’ve played in the Deep South Classic the past two years, and each year our girls got some serious exposure,” Lassiter said. “Those events have been great for our program, so we’re all looking forward to more of that type of exposure.”
