With the second quarter of school finishing up and the upcoming holidays, Team 2017 is taking off a few weeks for a well-deserved break from tournament play. However, before Teams 2019 and 2020 can join them in enjoying the holiday season they headed up to the mecca of basketball, Lawrence, Kansas for the MSP Holiday Classic. Each team would again play up in an older age division. The words from the weekend have to be perseverance and redemption. Each team started out pool play with a loss. The teams then buckled down and came together to win the rest of their pool games, sending Team 2019 to a first place finish in their pool and Team 2020 to a second place finish in their pool. Most importantly, each qualified for single-elimination bracket play.

The past two weekends the PowerGroup 2017 and 2019 teams have participated in two of the most competitive events in the Midwest during the fall basketball season.
First we traveled north along Interstate 35 to Ankeny, Iowa and the home of the Kingdom Hoops organization for the Gym Rats Fall Brawl.

The first weekend in December was a special one for the PowerGroup family. First of all we held our second free "Love For the Game" clinic at Central High School. This wonderful event has become a cornerstone of our campaign to give back to the community.
Secondly, the weekend provided the first opportunity for Team 2020 to hit the hardwood. This team was just formed in the early fall and has been practicing hard but was certainly eager to get out like the older teams and compete against someone other than each other.
