One month after wining the Ohio AAU State Championship the Cincinnati Lakers went down to Little Rock, Arkansas and placed 10th at the AAU National Championships. Looking back to last year this Lakers squad lost Ohio's top '14 PG in Tyonte Robertson (Withrow) and just kept on moving. The team also does not have the height to match most elite teams in its age group, but again they just kept on moving. Their depth, intensity, and togetherness led them to the placement stages where they've earned bragging rights as a top ten team nationally, and still the best team in Ohio at their age group; although CPHR would LOVE to see a showdown between them and the King James Shooting Stars 15u team!
Team: Mike Barwick (Summit PF), Martin Jones II (Winton Woods PF), Daniel Cage (Winton Woods C), Eric Eichler (Lakota East PF), Robert Caldwell (Dayton Stivers PG), Jeff Larkin (LaSalle PG/SG), Armand Walker (Summit SG), Erend Long (Fairfield SG), Herman Brunis (Fairfield SG), Matt Kittell (St. Xavier SF)
