March 29, 2013
Hardknocks won the Gold Division in the Bigshots Balitmore March Tipoff. The team played the Canada-America team for the championship and was lead with Joe Hugley 22 points 9rebounds who couldn't be stop inside or out. Joe went 6 for -10 from beyond the arc and Ryan Snell with 19 points, Terrell Campbell finished with 10 points and 8 assist to lead us with the Gold Championship. Ryan Snell couldn't be stop with his range which was on point. The Hardknocks got great guard play from David Garey and Terrell Campbell. No one could stop the little Big Man David Garey as he went by anyone in front of him. This was a great team win with Mark Pierce who hit some key shots beyond the arc and played tough defense, Keandre Jones and Ray Murrel defense inside the paint was to much for the 6'10 can-america center. they wouldn't back down and made it difficult for him to get any boards or points in the paint. The defense was outstanding keeping the 6'10 player off the boards from can-america team. The hardknocks had good bench play that kept the Can-america team off balance. The Hardknocks was up by 16 with 3 minutes left and can-america made a run but the hardknocks regroup to keep them at bay. The Hardknocks is 7-3 so far and 1-1 in championship play. Olny loosing to New York Lightening EYBL Nike team in the Agame shootout and Can-america in pool play. Joe Hugley was name MVP of the Tournament with 16 points, 12 rebounds and 2.8 Blocks a game. Go Hardknocks!!!

The Hardknocks 15u started off where they left last year in the Championship. Hardknocks had a very successful weekend in the Agame supershootout tournament in Philly. The team had strong play from David Gary who average 7 rebounds a game. The 5'5 point guard who is considerate the big man would not stop attempting to get rebounds and sacrificing his body for the team. Hardknocks also had strong play from Terrell Campbell, Riley Frankel, Mark Pierce, Keandre Jones, Khalil Sewell, Quiten, and Ryan Snell. The Hardknocks faced New York Lightening (EYBL) in the Championship series. This was the first tournament of the 2013 season and it looks to be a good season if these players continue to develop and play strong. Go Hardknocks
