Seth Allen tweeted a few days ago that he and the MD freshmen were going to take over the Kenner League. After a little bit of research, I've gathered that the Kenner League is a DC summer basketball league that often features recruits from local colleges as well as some interesting randoms. The league is officially named the Nike Pro-City League, but everyone still refers to it as the Kenner League.
Anyone have any more info on this? I'd like to know which teams MD players are on as well as any tips for going to the games.
Here's a link to the league schedule (which I've heard is somewhat unreliable):
And here's a link to a story about US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan playing in a recent Kenner League game:
Update: I went to watch the Kenner League games last Friday. Here are a few thoughts:
-The schedule I linked to above is indeed unreliable. I was expecting to see Emery Heights Elite, the team that's supposed to have some Terps players on it, in the first game, but there were two other teams playing instead.
-Berend Weijs and Logan Aronholt were playing for On Point on Friday. Weijs actually looked pretty decent on defense with some nice blocks. Aronholt made a couple of nice passes, but only shot a couple of threes, which he missed.
-The place was pretty dead for the first game, but filled up for the game featuring The Tombs. The Tombs features a bunch of Georgetown players, including Otto Porter, so their always the big draw in the Kenner League. Speaking of Porter, that guy looked like the real deal on Friday night.
