I can tell you that it was quite a struggle to put these teams together. As we all know, this area is loaded with prep basketball talent, so narrowing the teams to five players can be excruciating. At times we reached a complete standstill in our war room.
But, of course, this is a great forum for debate. What do you think of the teams? Any snubs? How about the guys team having just one senior?
Have at it in the comments.
