As all the viewing periods have ended and we hope to have a full high school basketball season, these ladies talk about their busy summer. From aau practice and travel to the east coast. All the young ladies talked about the big sacrifices their families and coaches have made and continue to make for them to be able to play the game of basketball. Of course we talk the behind the scene life of aau. We talk new players new system and high level competition.
We had to address some mental health issue and concerns the ladies had, and are still dealing with to this day.
