Iowa Barnstormers Gold 16u v. Team Factory 16u
Game Summary: This game was one of the premier 16u match-ups of the night. The battle between opposing point guards John Miller (Barnstormers) and Gabriel Hepburn (Team Factory) drew fans from all six courts. Although Miller sat much of the first half after scoring and assisting on a number of plays early on, his teammates picked up where he left off behind the physical play of Ajanta Hogan and the slashing ability of Anakin Kelly who helped the Barnstormers produce a 36-28 half time lead.
The court vision and versatility of Team Factory’s Greg Brown assisted his team in pulling within striking distance with just 1 minute remaining in the game. The 6’2 2021 guard exhibited the ability to create his own shot off the bounce and find open teammates for easy baskets. Unfortunately for Team Factory fans, costly turnovers down the stretch prevented a victorious comeback as the Barnstormers closed the game out by knocking down free-throws and putting the game away 67-60.
