NetScouts Basketball ISA All-Stars Head Coach Chris Denker: “China played very hard and the crowd was loud in their support of their team but our squad weathered some runs and played outstanding defense which jump started our running game. Amber shot the ball extremely well but also had some beautiful passes. Our guards really played well as a group, A.T. had her best game, Ari pitched in 5 assists, Alisha was all over the floor on defense and Amy does so many of the little things to help you win…”
“It was a great night for the ladies, after the game and awards ceremony the fans spilled onto the floor to have photos taken with the players. Our team signed autographs and posed for photos for 20-30 minutes after the game. All four teams also took a group picture together which was cool as well.”
