Riverside Brookfield Summer Shootout Day 1!!!!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed Day 1. Some good performances I saw. Here's the breakdown:

Best team: Glenbard West(Glen Ellyn)- Beat both Simeon Career Academy(Chicago) and St Rita(Chicago) by double digits. Tall, long, and tough to score on in their 1-2-2 zone defense. Shooters all over the court and handled Simeon's pressure very well for most of the game.

Best player: Caden Pierce, Glenbard West(Glen Ellyn)- Class of 2022 6'6" guard did everything today. Rebounded, hit threes, hit mid range jumpers, and scored on drives to the basket.

Best individual performance: Cameron Christie, Rolling Meadows- Class of 2023 6'6" point guard scored from all over the court. Threes, floaters, finishes at the rim with both hands. He scored 22 points in a very efficient performance.

Dunk of the day: Ryan Renfro, Glenbard West(Glen Ellyn)- See a pattern developing here? Class of 2022 6'8" forward drove baseline and had a nasty two handed dunk over one of the Rubin brothers of Simeon(not sure which because the Wolverines wore jerseys with no numbers on them). You can see the replay on
