The Nebraska Supreme AAU basketball program continued its busy July stretch with a weekend trip to Texas.
Supreme competed in the Under Armour Association Session II live period event at FieldhouseUSA in Frisco, Texas. Last weekend, Supreme was in Georgia for the UAA Session I.
Supreme’s 17U squad was impressive again, going 4-1 on the weekend. Supreme is now a combined 10-2 in the two UAA live period events, and will mostly likely see a first-round bye in next weekend’s finals in Indianapolis.
Supreme’s 15U team went 4-1, with the lone loss coming in overtime. The 16U team was 1-4
