This past weekend, the Connecticut TopBallerz traveled to New Jersey to face a 1-0 New Jersey Express on National Television. "The experience was absolutely amazing" stated guard Navelle Stevenson, a first year player looking to develop his skills and get a shot at the next level.
New Jersey came out firing hitting 3 three-pointers to take an early lead. With TV cameras and bright lights everywhere, the young TopBallerz realized that it was time to play ball. "We are small team but we have a lot of heart" said 1st year Head Coach John Kemp. We need to Make our shots! The TopBallerz failed to capitalize on scoring opportunities shooting 35% in the first half and 38% for the game. Down by 15 points at halftime team TopBallerz put together a plan to lock down on defense and create points early in the second half. Andre DeFlorimonte (6'2''-G, college: Jarvis Christian) leading the charge with team high 27 points just wasn't enough to change the deficit. Mercury Fiske (6'1''-G) added 20 pts and Bobby Moore (5'8''-G-79, college: W.Nebraska CC) 14 in the loss.
"It was a great experience for the guys to get the first game out of the way; we will fix the shot percentage and be ready for the rematch on the 29th."
