News Flash! – SUMMER COLLEGE BASKETBALL OVER!
The Good the Bad and the Ugly, at the Sonny Hill basketball league. The powers to be has ended the NCCA sanctioned college basketball league, in the city of Philadelphia. The college league that started around 1988. (Please refer to “Google” Sonny Hill Quaker Men got game over the summer) The “Good” (Villanova national champs 2016 & 2018) At a time when the NCAA is struggling with players go to NBA, and with all college players needing to be seen. WOW.
The “Ugly” NO summer college basketball at Hill. Thanks.

B2B Sports update/ New SAT Format
If a student-athlete takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining the student-athlete’s initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.
We always think ours is the next Maya Moore.
Being a mother of athlete has afforded me a little knowledge. I thought because my daughter scored 15-25 points per game and joined the 1,000 point club she was UCONN bound, LOL. We as parents have to be realistic in our expectations.
I was grateful for the guidance I received from one of the coaches from B2B Sports. Coach was able to let me know exactly where my child fit in as far as college was concerned and he also offered my daughter workouts and information on how to improve her college recruitment chances. I wish I would have been able to get involved with B2B Sports much earlier on in her career. Anyone seriously interested in helping your child improve as an athlete should contact B2B Sports ASAP!!!!!
