NCAA March Madness is underway and teams have been running plays to perfection. In the first round of play, Albany may not have had the talent to match up with Florida but some of their sets allowed them to compete and make it more of a matchup than what people expected. This set is simple but effective with numerous options to score and throw the defense off balance.

The SEC tournament is currently underway and coaches are pulling out their best sets. Alabama has figured out a way to utilize their small personel by running this set against LSU. In order for this play to work to perfection, your guards need to be able to handle the ball and your 4man needs to be able to shoot from the perimeter. If guards are aggressive enough, they may be able to turn the corner and get to the rim for a layup or draw a foul.

It is no secret, North Carolina basketball automatically rings a bell. The University of North Carolina and Duke University, arguably two of the best college basketball programs, speaks volumes about the state. The success of the programs have easily influenced youth basketball in the community. This year will be Elite Hoop's 5th consecutive year in North Carolina. Each summer camp has been sold out months in advance. The history of North Carolina basketball and Elite Hoops is ringing bells in Concord.
The NIKE Boys Basketball Camp will be directed by Lee Miller and the Elite Hoops staff. Also former and current college basketball players in the area will help assist camp. The camp location will be at Cannon School in Concord, NC.

If the game of basketball had a mascot, it would be a pine tree. Why you ask? The history of basketball proves that pine wood played a major role in the development of the great sport. In the beginning, pine wood was commonly used for basketball courts and bleachers. The phrase "ride the pine" for players that did not get a chance to play, originated from the pine wood made benches. Now different wood and materials are used for courts and seating, but Elite Hoops decided to keep the pine wood tradition alive. This summer, the 5th annual NIKE Basketball Camp will be in Cumming, Ga at Piney Grove Middle School. The coincidentally named middle school has sold out each of the previous 4 summers. Camp will have a combination of old school work ethic with a new school style.
Elite Hoops own Lee Miller will be hosting the Cumming NIKE Basketball Camp in June. Outside of Miller's great work with Elite Hoops, his resume speaks volumes. Miller has directed/worked camps including the University of Georgia, Duke University, NBA Complete Player Camp, and Pete Newell's Big Man Camp in Las Vegas. If you think you can keep up, come to Piney Grove Middle School this summer.
The 2014 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Piney Grove Middle School in Cumming, Georgia will be held June 16-20, 2014. To sign up and register, please select the link below.
