Note: See Part 1 of this story that took a look at the Next Level All-American Camp on July 6-7 in San Diego, the Next Level Nationals on July 8-10 in San Diego and for two national events near Nashville, Tenn.
Halfway through the NCAA-mandated week-long “dark period” of basketball recruiting when Division I college coaches can’t observe players or events, the Girls of Summer basketball caravan provided the eyes and ears for those coaches at the July 19-22 San Diego Classic.
Of the overall 200 teams competing, 40 were in the 3A Division that was observed.
Despite playing without 2013 stars Courtney Range and Onome Jemerigbe, St. Mary’s (Stockton) won it’s first-ever 3A title with an exciting 48-47 win over a Central Catholic of Portland (Ore.) team that was at full strength with All-American candidates Kailee Johnson and Jordan Reynolds both playing.
