Johnson, Robinson, and Madison: ABR Live Summer Send-off

Darius Williams is not the only new* face on the GA Stars Augusta AAU team. Daquarius Johnson, Jaylan Robinson, and Keon Madison are also recent additions who seem poised to make an impact during the July evaluation period.

Johnson (6'4" forward) is extremely explosive with a soft shooting touch. Robinson has a very quick first step and he attacks the basket well. And Madison is a defensive pest who can run a team and knock down the open shot.

See these high school teammates (GAIS Eagles) in the video above of action from session 1 of the ABR Live Summer Send-off.

Brown's vs Angels: ABR Live Summer Send-off

The opening game of last Tuesday's ABR Live Summer Send-off was a good one between Brown's Electric and the Alleluia Angels.  Alleluia jumped out to an early lead behind the inside play of Hayden Hebert and the sharp shooting and heady basketball of guards Ben Dresser, Mac McBride, and Elliot Balducci.  But Brown's guards proved to be too much for the Angels in the end.  See the highlights from the game in the video above.

And join us Monday, July 14, at the Old Columbia Middle School for session 2 of the ABR Live Summer Send-off.

GA-Lina Heat: ABR Live Summer Send-off

The GA-Lina Heat 16u AAU team lost to a tough opponent (GA Stars Augusta 17u) in session 1 of the ABR Live Summer Send-off.  But the Heat are very capable of doing damage in July.  The team was led last Tuesday by the inside-outside combination of Daniel Chisolm (Laney) and Stephon Washington (Butler).  Watch the duo in the video above.

Darius Williams: ABR Live Summer Send-off

Along with the Southern Kings, the Georgia Stars Augusta 17u team has long been our area's top program. And the return of Josey guard Darius Williams makes them a scary draw in July.

Williams shoots and handles the ball so well. Add explosive athletic ability and Williams is able to score better than anyone locally. He averaged over 30 ppg as a junior, and he showed why it comes so easily Tuesday during session 1 of the ABR Live Summer Send-off.

See a sampling of what Darius does in the video above. And stay tuned as we follow Williams and his Stars teammates through session 2 of the Summer Send-off and next week's Peach State Summer Showcase.
