Jayce Wolfe, an EBCI tribal member, participated in a NCAA Certified exposure event at Clemson University on April 21 – 22. He played with his other travel team, Team Felton, and they took the 14U big Shots National title.
This was an exposure event for basketball athletes to earn an opportunity to play in front of NCAA college scouts and recruiters. In order to do this, they had to win their games to get to the Gold Championship Bracket in their age group. These events are primarily focused on the older age groups so the younger ones don’t get as many opportunities. A loss would put them in consolation games and knock them out of a chance to play on theLittlejohn Coliseum Court.
Team Felton opened up against EOTO (Each One Teach One) fromFlorida. They had a big win and advanced in the Gold Bracket. Next, they faced Lower Richland Promise fromVirginia, and Team Felton won impressively 79 – 35.
Next up was the Wilson Blue Devils fromNorth Carolina. Team Felton jumped out with a big lead on the Blue Devils and finished with a 69 – 52 win. This win took them to the Gold Bracket Championship game where they faced the Big Shots Elite team on theLittlejohn Coliseum Court. This game was close and tied up at the half, but Team Felton started out strong the second half and finished with a 67 – 45 win.
Next up for Wolfe is the AAU State Tournament in Raleigh with Cherokee Flight on April 27-29 and another Big Shots Exposure Tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC with Team Felton on May 4-6.
“Jayce and his family would like to thank all of his supporters and all those that have purchased from him for his fundraising efforts. We would not be able to continue to travel without everyone’s continued support,” said the Wolfe family.
