News> Topballerz Report To Camp

October 5, 2011

On Monday, the Connecticut Topballerz opened their mini-camp to 35 invitees on a quest to earn the coveted ABA Championship. Camp started at 6, but players lined the gymnasium doors as early as 4:30 with hopes and aspirations of becoming part of the Topballerz organization. Players from all across the world walked through the gym doors on Clinton Avenue. From Jamual Warren (PG at Univ. of Cincinnati), to Japhet McNeil, the standout guard from New York, to New Haven’s Bobby Moore and other’s that traveled from Canada, Libya and even Madagascar.

From the moment the first basketball hit the floor, players and coaches knew that this was going to be one heck of a training camp. Head coach AJ Huston stated that “this is going to be a lot of fun in one sense, but extremely difficult in another. I am excited about the amazing talent that we have here today, but in saying that, it makes our jobs as coaches that much harder to narrow the group down to 12 by this Friday.”

The first day was everything the coaches and owners expected. The intensity and dedication displayed by the players was indicative of their desire to make the Topballerz team. Players were diving on the floor, taking charges, supporting one another and epitomizing the essence of “hard work.” Newly signed Assistant Coach, Maurice Williamson (one of Connecticut’s best ball players ever) expressed his excitement and said that “these athletes are going above and beyond our wildest expectations and this is only day ONE!”

Camp will continue on throughout the week, every night from 6 to 8 pm at 293 Clinton Avenue, New Haven. Feel free to come out and get a sneak peak of Connecticut’s professional basketball team, your Connecticut Topballerz!
