Sumbry, Etou shine at Hoop Group Camp 

July, 14, 2012
READING, Pa. -- The July grind. Sometimes there isn’t enough time to do everything, see everybody. Regardless, you give it a try even if it means coming in for a few hours and skimming the cream off the top.

At the Hoop Group Elite Camp, I got my cream skimming on. Sandwiched in between two days at Reebok Breakout Challenge and Myrtle Beach Big Shots, was the final day of Hoop Group Elite Camp, the all-star version. For only spending five hours in the joint, I feel pretty good about what I saw.

The setting afforded an opportunity to see about 40 Division I prospects ranging from 2013 to 2015. Camp talent coordinator Chad Babel made it easy with his precision selection of the all-star teams. It truly was shooting fish in a barrel. While colleague Adam Finkelstein did a more thorough job, allow me to offer up a taste of the cream that was skimmed.
