Golden Nugz for 06-16-09

Summer is here and it is just a matter of time before the Howard Pulley Pro-City League starts up again.  For those of you who do not know this is great summer league for mostly local professionals (NBA, NBDL, Europe, etc) and D1/D2 players.  Guys like Kahlid El-Amin, Kamron Taylor and Troy Hudson played last year against Al Nolen Blake Hoffarber, Damien Johnson and the host of newcomers on last year's roster. 

I went to a night of games last year to get a look at Sampson, Iverson, Bostick and Joseph.  The games have little defense as you can imagine but it is a great way to get a glimpse of what we will see on the new Barn floor next year.  Marcus Fuller has posted what Gophers will be playing with each other.

Team El-Amin Fishhouse (defending league champs)

  • Paul Carter and Devron Bostick (and Travis Busch)

Troy Hudson's Enterprises

  • Royce White (no Gopher teammates playing on White's team)

The TRP Group

  • Ralph Sampson, Justin Cobbs, Damien Johnson

Errol Carlstrom Playaz

  • Trevor Mbwake and Devoe Joseph

A&A Millwork

  • Al Nolen and Colton Iverson

B2X

  • Blake Hoffarber, Lawrence Westbrook, Rodney Williams and walkon Dominique Dawson

It is important to note that the rosters are kind of fluid but to start with if you take a look at this summer's schedule and look for the above teams.  I urge you to go, the games are free and it is athletic basketball.  Like I mentioned above it is not full of defense but I learned early on that Bostick could not shoot from the outside and that Iverson was going to be a tough player on the inside.
