Powerade Texas Jamboree
The 8th Annual Texas Jamboree featured teams from Austin, Alabama, Dallas, Houston, New York, and San Antonio. Many came from far and wide to show how they ball in their respective cities. The event featured 17 games over the two day period, 20 total teams and several dozen future college basketball prospects. Anyone in attendance witnessed a treat in a variety of games, and to me is a perfect way to cap off any holiday weekend.
