About the Club

How the club and seasons work:

The Michigan Hoopers AAU Basketball Club is designed to expose new players/families to AAU basketball, build competitive teams from season to season with roster continuity and have a vision for the complete basketball experience from 1st grade to 12th grades.

The 2014/2015 AAU season is made up 6-“mini” seasons:-Fall-I/Fall-II/Winter- I/Winter- II/Spring/Summer. Each season will last anywhere from 8 weeks to 10 weeks.

Each season will coincide with the AAU Sanctioned Detroit Leagues. All of the club teams will compete in the D-Leagues. The D-Leagues provide mid-to upper level AAU competition, weekly games and appropriate age brackets. To learn more about the D-Leagues go to http://mwabasketball.com/bbleagues.html

Teams practice 2-times per week, usually play in 1-2 local AAU friendship tournaments, have a paid/qualified coach and have access to the weekly FLASH Repetition Training program on Saturday mornings.

Players can opt in and out of the program during the calendar year. We take every precaution to keep rosters together from season to season. This is great way to have a greater chance of success on the AAU circuit.

 

15U BBC Select teams has a solid spring season

The 15U-BBC Select boys team finished a solid Spring AAU season for 2013.  The team participated in tournaments each and every weekend beginning in March 2013.  Joining the original core group of Trey, Sebastian and Spencer were Jordan, Adam, Jake, Cole, MJ, and Mike.  Notable accomplishments this year were:

 

 

2013 Adidas Motown Showdown Bronze Division Champion-Trey Harris and Sebastian Tavalieri, Division Co-MVP’s

2013 Oakland Elite Motor city Mayhem -Division Winner, Tournament Runner-Up

2013 Common Bond invitational -Tournament Runner-Up-Trey Harris-Offensive MVP-Adam Porter Defensive MVP

 

17U BBC Select in the 2013 Strom Classic

The weather wasn't so delightful as April brewed up a storm in Grand Rapids besides the annual Storm tournament. But there was a new wind blowing thru Western Michigan as BBC's 17u Select team competed.

The team's first game was against a formidable Indy Fire team that hit an unprecedented 18 three's. That sent the team to the Bronze bracket where they faced the Saginaw Underdawgs, getting a win. The 3rd game was against Michigan Titans. It was a rebounding battle won by the Titans sending Select to the consolation bracket. The team realed off 3 straight wins, beating the Macomb Cougars, Tri County Tigers, and South Michigan Lightning.

The team was guided by the leadership of Brother Rice guard Stephen Westbrooks who left it all on the floor, scoring, sharing the ball, and showing leadership on the court.
 
 
 
 

GP North's Jacob Zacharias showed why he's one of Macomb's top shooters as he hit pretty well from NBA range and extending himself defensively. Timely scoring and rebounding was displayed all weekend by forwards Damone Tillman (Southlake), Tyler Leighton (Hartland) and Nick Englehart (Hartland). Tillman, Leighton, and Englehart were the enforcers out there. Leading all of the forwards in minutes played, rebounds, and scoring was the atheltic Tony Jackson (Fitzgerald). Jackson's confidence and leadership was the glue of the Select team. Two highlights of the weekend was the last couple of games , where "Big Daddy" Danny Dixon (GP South) yelled at his team mates to give him the ball, and he hit numerous sky and baby hook shots and put backs. Danny really did his thing. Lastly was the finale when guard Westbrooks' went down with an injury with 3 minutes left, and the Lighting were mounting a ferocious comeback; Westbrooks' childhood friends Lavonte' Dorsey (Southfield-Lathrup) and Pharoah Johnson (Ferndale) hit big shot after big shot, and sealed the win with clutch free throws. A 4-2 record was a great accomplishment for a newly formed team.     

BBC Select Standout Eric Ewing-Post Season Honors

Junior Eric Ewing made the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press All-East Metro Team Honorable Mention this season and received an honorable mention on the All-State teams as well.

In addition, he was named the Most Valuable Player for the MIAC League and an honorable mention to the state class C team as voted on by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan.

Coach Williams Court "Just Play"


With years of dedication to the club, players, parents and the great game of basketball, it only made sense to reward Coach Williams for all of his hardwork. If you see Coach Williams give him a handshake and say Thanks. He is what is great about teaching, preparing and rewarding the youth of today.

Karl Williams began his basketball career at the age of 14 in VanWerth, Ohio. Williams relocated to Detroit, Michigan and attended Osborn High School for the 11th and 12th grade. Williams graduated from Osborn in 1989 and was then recruited to the Macomb Community College (MCC) basketball team located in Warren, Michigan where he finished 2 years as a “strong” power forward. Williams went on to play for Walsh College located in Canton, Ohio. He continued his love for basketball in Detroit, Michigan playing in multiple semi-pro leagues, Gus Macker tournaments and the American Old Timers basketball traveling league for 35 and over, representing Wayne County Michigan.

In 1999, Williams began his career as a coach for Russell Street Baptist Church in Detroit. At Russell Street, he coached three basketball teams for boys’ ages 5-16 years old, in one season. From 2002 to 2005 he continued coaching for Huron Park Elementary School for his son and daughter’s basketball teams who played at the Parks and Recreation Center in Roseville, Michigan. In 2003, he went into the arena of coaching for the American Amateur Union (AAU) boys’ basketball team the Macomb Maniacs. In 2005, Williams assembled and coached a boys AAU team at Basketball City in Roseville. Williams is in his 7th season of coaching boys and girls AAU teams with the Michigan Hoopers.

Karl Williams is committed to the community by giving back to our youth. He strives on bringing out the best in them by utilizing the tools of basketball. Williams believes that by working hard and learning the fundamentals anyone can become successful at basketball or anything in life. Williams says; “This is the same philosophy I learned from Coach Switch at MCC”.

Coach Williams is currently the Head Assistant at Macomb College..

Williams’ family includes his wife, Donyale, daughter, Aja, and sons Traye and Troye
