This past weekend the 17u Crossfire Schmidt team headed to Iowa to play in the Midwest Cup Prep Hoops event.

In pool play we went a disappointing 1-2 losing to the Iowa Dynasty and the TriCity Thunder before coming back and slapping around the Iowa Cornsharks select team. Heading into bracket play on Sunday we found ourselves in a lower bracket than is typical for this squad, and they turned on the fire and beat up on these teams… the final squad made a good run at us, but other than that was pretty much a cakewalk through the bracket ending with a “Silver” tier championship (Platinum and Gold brackets above us).

Game 1 vs Iowa Dynasty Loss 68-41
Game 2 vs TriCity Thunder (Chicago) Loss 76-46
Game 3 vs Iowa Cornsharks Select Win 87-71
Game 4 vs Tryon Gym 2 (western Iowa) Win 78-44
Game 5 vs Iowa Cornsharks Metro Win 55-42
Game 6 vs Iowa Pump-n-Run Win 54-51

Takes the team to 18-9 on the season going into the off week.
