Trey Smith, an upcoming sophomore at Delphos Jefferson, is a member of Team Work (15 and under) AAU Basketball squad that won the Platinum Championship of the prestigious Adidas Invitational Tournament in Indianapolis from July 10-14. The tournament started with over 90 teams in the 15 and under division and 38 teams qualified for the Platinum (highest) bracket through pool play with the remaining teams divided over the gold, silver and bronze brackets. Team Work cruised through pool play with no game closer than 22 points. The squad opened tournament play with a hard-fought 57-54 victory over Hoop Dreams (KY). They posted victories over Wisconsin Playground Warriors 46-40, Grand Rapids Storm 64-48, Houston Defenders 64-59 (OT) and Iowa Barnstormers 57-46 to earn a spot in the Championship game. Work brought home the title with a 96-88 win over the Compton Magic (Los Angeles). The championship is the current highlight of a season that has also included tourney titles at the King James Classic and the Lake Erie District National Qualifier. The team currently sports an impressive 36-5 record. In addition to Smith (No. 24 in the picture), teammates hail from Medina HS, Mentor HS, Dublin Coffman HS, Dublin Jerome HS, Athens HS, New Concord John Glenn HS, Walsh Jesuit H and Magnolia (WV) HS. Smith and his teammates are now off to Orlando, Fla., where they will compete in the AAU Super Showcase and the AAU Nationals (where they will play up in the 16 and under division). As a side note, Dakota Mathias of Elida was a member of the 17U team that won the Gold Bracket (second level) in the same tournament. (Photo submitted)
