Augusta Invitational: Friday Recap:

What a start to the beginning of what is shaping up to be one of the greatest tournaments Hoop Quest has put on! We had talent coming into town from across the state of Georgia, North and South Carolina, putting the competition at an all time high. 
We've got teams such as Team Power, looking to extend its reign of tournament championships, up against teams like UE Warriors out of Georgia looking to take their shine. There is no doubt the show was stolen tonight by our young teams tonight! We had multiple close games between our youngest teams, including the Game of the Night between the 8u Team Power and the UE Warriors. Team Power jumped out to a quick 7 point lead, and held that lead for majority of the game until the UE Warriors found a spark on the court. The Warriors battled all the way back to cut the lead to one, but just could not get over the hump. Team Power ended up winning the thriller 20-19. The competition will continue to get better today as all the teams complete their pool play games and begin their playoff games tonight. Stay tuned to find out who will come out as the Augusta Invitational Champions!
