Keep an eye out for our next G365 event at OGP Oakland which will be the Summer Slam on July 22-23. 

  • In the 10U Division the 916 Dream Chasers were the team to watch all weekend long. The dynamic duo of Travis Vipond and Lejon Lee Jr. were unstoppable. It seemed as if they were making spectacular plays every possession of every game. Vipond was named MVP and averaged 17.25 PPG and hitting an average of 3 three pointers per game. His duo partner Josiah Price was named All-Tournament as he averaged 12.25 PPG and 3 RPG. Together they were a joy to watch all at the G365 Gold Rush. 
  • The 11U division was one of the most exciting divisions of the weekend as Lakeshow and Dream Chasers led the way. The championship game between those two teams was the best and last championship game on Sunday. Dream Chasers fought back as they were down 10 with 5 minutes left in the ball game and somehow sent it to OT with a Marcus Price Jr. three ball. The MVP Gearre Harvin helped carry the load and finished the job in overtime as Dream Chasers won the championship. Harvin finished the tournament with 15.25 PPG, 5.5 RPG, and 3.25 SPG.

  • Lakeshow finished the G365 Gold Rush tournament with an undefeated record but it wasn’t easy as they took on the Silicon Valley Soldiers in the  championship game. The Soldiers started off great and had the biggest lead of the game which was 14 points. Lakeshow locked in during the second half and took care of business. It was no easy comeback but they came together as a team and got it done as they won 46-43 with some big time buckets and free throws. Jaden Bhandal earned MVP as he was a scoring machine all weekend long averaging 12 PPG and 2 SPG.
  • Templeton Fountaine V led his team to an undefeated and dominant weekend. Once the tournament started the 13U Payton’s Place didn’t look back as they won by an average of 23.25 PPG. Being able to go undefeated at a tournament is hard in itself but winning by a margin of over 20 PPG is extremely difficult. Fountaine V averaged a double double at the G365 Gold Rush and his numbers consisted of 19.5 PPG and 10.5 RPG. 
  • The 14U Gold division was a fun one to watch this weekend as all teams battled hard to attain the championship trophy. Yet, the Reno Ballers were the team to beat as they went undefeated with MVP Jamahl Jackson and All-Tournament’s Veo Dizon leading the way. Jackson was on an absolute tear and playing with the utmost effort every game and finished the tournament with 14 PPG and 4.5 RPG. His teammate Dizon had some clutch buckets all weekend long and he finished the weekend with 8 PPG and 2 SPG.
