As is the new normal for us, we played 10 kids in the rotation, ended up playing all 12. Our press was solid early, but wasn’t great the entire game. We are still learning the rotations, it’s a different look than what my guys are used too, but they are getting better at it. It’s one of those things that we will continue to play out the season doing and carry over into our summer program. I know it will be better as we get comfortable. It’s always tough to play a team at home on senior night. Always a lot of emotion involved. Burden came out on a high and played hard, but Grant Smith got on a roll early, couple of steals and finishes at the rim swung the emotion and momentum to us. We were able to take control early. Camren Clements shot the ball well, and we did a nice job of sharing the ball, we had a lot of kids score last night. Now our regular season is over. We are 8-12 right now. Looks like we will be the #6 seed in a very tough sub-state at Sedan that features #1 seed undefeated Sedan, #2 seed West Elk, and #4 seed Pitt Colgan. We will play Uniontown, who is the #3 seed out of the Three Rivers League. Looking at them on film, they are very thick, strong, athletic team, that pressures the ball, they run their 4 out 1 in motion very well, and are just well coached. It is going to be a handful of a game, but one thing I do know, is we will compete and play hard for 32 minutes. Our kids have been that way all year, we’ve lost some close games (6 games by 7 pts or less), we are almost there. I’ve been very happy with how this young team has developed and matured this year. Follow us on Twitter. OXFORD: Norris 6, Cook 6, Talbert 3, B. Metz 6, Gaither 2, K. Metz 5.last_img read more

Donaldson’s P.R.O.M.I.S.E. camp develops youth on and off court

first_imgby Malik VincentOne of the ways that Jakim Donaldson, a former basketball standout at Edinboro University, gives back to his North Side community is his annual summer basketball camp.The 6-foot-8 former Division II All-American currently competes overseas in Spain’s top professional league. The Oliver grad and his father, Jay, organized the camp that had more than 70 kids, this year. STAR POWER—Former UConn star Ashley Battle (right) drives on two campers. Battle was one of the instructors at the Jakim Donaldson P.R.O.M.I.S.E. Basketball Camp held July 25-27 at Perry High School. (Courier Photos/William McBride) “Just to see the twinkle in the kids’ eyes when you say ‘free camp’ motivates us,” Jay said.The annual camp is in its second year and was held July 25-27 at Perry High School.“I think it’s so instrumental to have these types of things for the development of young players,” Jakim said. “They didn’t have very many free camps when I was coming up, so for them to have a chance to take advantage of one makes it a worthwhile cause.”With both offensive and defensive drills as well as ball handling technique training, the camp focused on what to do on the court, but Donaldson said that’s not its sole teaching.“We had several people come in and mentor the participants,” Jay added. “We want them to understand the importance of how to conduct themselves off the court. It’s equally important.Several entities, throughout the North Side and beyond, served as the camp’s sponsors. Some included: the Northside Leadership Conference, Mark Anthony Salon in Oakland, Quik-it Chicken on Brighton Road, and City of Pittsburgh District 6 City Councilman R. Daniel Lavelle.“We’re in our second year and it’s great to see how some the kids have grown mentally, in their game, and physically,” Jakim added.His father pointed out the Pittsburgh Pirates as a major sponsor. His other son, Jehru—18 at the time—was murdered on his way to one of their games.The team has donated 150 to 200 tickets to their P.R.O.M.I.S.E. (Protecting and Restoring the Order of Mankind with the Initiative of Serving Elders) organization, which is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit.“We at P.R.O.M.I.S.E. are very appreciative to the Pirates’ generosity, not only with this camp, but with everything that this organization does,” he said.In addition to the camp, they also hold an annual ‘Gathering of Loved Ones’ event that is held in Northside’s West Park that provides food and games, in an effort to stop the violence.“The community’s role in this is essential for our growth,” Jay said. “We need its continued support in order for us to keep this going.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at mvincent@newpittsburghcourier.com or on Twitter @malikvincent.)last_img read more
