Team Texas Wins Its Second Major Title

Team Texas, led by Bracey Wright and Bryan Hopkins, pulled off what had been impossible until now. They won both the Nike Peach Jam and Super Showcase. It's truly and incredible feat, especially when you consider that while a talented bunch, one title would have been tough but the double-dip was seemingly just a dream. Congratulations to the members of this outstanding organization.

Double-Dip For Team Texas

Bracey Wright and Team Texas became the first AAU program to win both the Nike Peach Jam and Super Showcase in the same year. Team Texas defeated BABC, the team it bested for the Peach Jam crown, 75-65 and captured the championship in Orlando.

Texas went 7-1 in the tournament, losing only to a team from Memphis and that was by two points. "Our lead [in the title game] was between 11 and 18," assistant Travis Edwards told BlueChipHoops. "They never ever threatened us."

Wright led the way with 21 points, swingman Josh Washington chipped in with 19 and Bryan Hopkins added 15.

We'll have more in this sweet July run after the hoopla of the open period draws to a close.
