Tyus Jones, Reid Travis and the Minneapolis-based Howard Pulley Panthers won eight games in five days to win the 2013 Champion ESPN Games AAU Boys’ Basketball 11th Grade Super Showcase Gold Division in Orlando.
Travis (DeLaSalle) scored a game-high 27 points in Sunday’s championship to lead Howard Pulley past Each 1 Teach 1 of Florida 79-72. The Panthers beat four teams from Florida, two from Ohio, one from Massachusetts and one from Virginia to finish undefeated.
“We’ve played tough teams like this one today all summer and played hard,” Howard Pulley coach Antwan Harris said in a press release. “We held them to one shot in the last minute and hit our free throws.”
The Gophers have offered scholarships to Jones (Apple Valley), Travis, and the Panthers’ Class of 2015 guard Jarvis Johnson (DeLaSalle).
