When the summer dust settles in 2015, one team will stand on top of the travel basketball world. The All Star Girls Report Summer League will make its debut, featuring 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 you think about having the top teams playing against the top teams, I think that concept appeals to everyone,” said Coach Alfred Motton of the FBC program in Atlanta. “This will give us a chance to see who is really the best each summer, and the All Star Girls Report is doing a great job of getting high level teams into to the league.”
The concept, and the involvement of ASGR, immediately received a positive reaction from the summer circuit participants.
“I see two major positives for the players,” said Coach Eric Daniels of Memphis Elite. “First, they get an opportunity to play against the very best competition, and that will be a great experience. They will also get great exposure in these games.”
“The competition is the big thing,” added Coach Mike Davis from BWSL in Richmond, Va. “We have a lot of highly recruited players in our program, and we think they will really benefit from this. We also think the kids who aren’t getting that attention right now will benefit. Our goal is to help these kids get to the next level, and this will give them a great opportunity to display their skills.”
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.
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.
“It looks like this is the direction things are headed, and there isn’t a better group to put together this type of elite league,” Daniels said. “They have a tremendous amount of experience, and success.”
