The full challenge match-ups will be released in May. We’ll keep track of all 2011-12 schedule updates on the future schedule page.
- It’s a big weekend on the AAU circuit with the Grand Rapids Storm Classic, Pittsburgh Jam Fest, and Battle for the Arch all scheduled. I’ll be at the Jam Fest but unfortunately Nick Stauskas is sitting out this weekend with a knee injury.
