Jones, Hawks Look For Wins In The Milk House

Reporter Mike Sullivan Will Be In Orlando, Florida inside the Milk House to watch plenty of basketball ...

The Westchester Hawks have made some solid statements over the past year regarding how terrific its AAU basketball program has become. Led by program director Tom Jennings, the Hawks have fielded some very solid teams over the past few years. Last season, Phil Diasparra coached his way to many big victories in some of the country's top tournaments.

This year, head coach Bob Rizzo had done a tremendous job in developing a roster full of very talented players. Among them are Mookie and Kevin Jones, each of them being heavily recruited by big name schools in college basketball.

But there is more to the Westchester Hawks than the Jones' players. Rizzo can select seven to eight players that can be an immediate impact for him on the court.

Over the next two weeks, the Westchester Hawks will compete at the Wide World of Sports complex on the grounds of Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The Hawks hope to be a serious contender to land the 17 and under Super Showcase, an event that will be played inside the Milk House at the Wide World of Sports complex.

The Milk House is perhaps the best facility to watch an AAU event too. Many of the country's top AAU players and teams will be there starting Monday to try and win a Showcase title. The 16 and under Showcase is already underway inside the Milk House.

The facility gives fans, coaches, and scouts an opportunity to watch many games during a day without having to travel very far. Four courts are located downstairs while two are upstairs. And all the courts are within a 5-minute walk.

The Hawks are likely to have many fans and coaches watching them during this two week adventure. After the Showcase concludes next week, the National AAU event for 17 and under boys begins. The Hawks are also competing in this event.

These are two very big weeks for the Hawks and their players. College coaches will be watching Mookie and Kevin Jones for sure. But with players like Trinity Fields, Alberto Estwick, Sean Kilpatrick, Albert Rogers, Kevin Drew, and Simeon Marsalis, there is plenty of support for those two star prospects.

This site will have complete coverage of the Showcase starting early next week.
