July Period III - Las Vegas

The Division I open recruiting periods are officially over for 2015 and like each year, our staff attended several tournaments in Las Vegas this past week. With thousands of teams coming in from all over the country, Las Vegas is a great place to see many different players. While driving between high school gyms can become exhausting, we enjoyed seeing some terrific talent this past week.

Now that July is winding down, we are looking forward to cumulating all of our notes from this summer in search of the perfect student-athletes that fit our program. It has been a very busy July and we would like to thank all of the event organizers from this summer that helps us locate some great future Trinity Tigers.

July Period II - Duncanville

This past week the Trinity Basketball coaching staff spent the second July open recruiting period in Duncanville, TX at the Great American Shootout. Mike, Sam, Blue, and the rest of their staff always put on a world-class event that promotes great basketball. We'd like to thank them for the hospitality shown to us each year.

With one open period week remaining, be on the lookout for Trinity Basketball at the BigFoot Classic, Fab48, and Adidas Uprising in Las Vegas, NV this week.

Faces on the Hill - The Trinity Bunch

You could spend every day meeting a new face on campus and it would still take years to get through all of the impactful employees we have here at Trinity. Our student-athletes are very fortunate to be surrounded by so many caring individuals that want to help them succeed. While each student may not meet every person in every department, this video is a great start to getting to know some people that every Trinity student should get to know during their time on "the Hill."

July Period I - LA / Seattle / GMI

This past week was the first week of the July open-recruiting period for NCAA Division I programs, which means some terrific tournaments bringing in hundreds of summer teams to each event. The Trinity Basketball staff used this opportunity to get into various parts of the country and watch some talented student-athletes. Our staff made it out to the following events -

Double Pump Summer Tip-Off Classic - Anaheim, CA - This was a very well run event at the American Sports Center near Disneyland, with so many courts under one roof. It was good to see all of the Southern California programs in action, as well as many teams from out of state. The talent was strong and we look forward to returning to this event for years to come. One highlight of the week was getting to enjoy some food at the iconic Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles!

NW Premier Showcase - Seattle, WA - Our staff has enjoyed visiting Bellevue College the past several years for Coach Jeremy Eggers' tournament. It is not only great to see the quality of talent in the Northwest region, but the officials training that takes place at this event is world-class. There is some great teaching going on all around.

GMI - Houston, TX - Jim Hicks' George McLellan Invitational is always a well run event that treats us college coaches extremely well and brings in some of the top teams in the state and region. The basketball was really great, but it may have been outdone by the hospitality room at The Gym.

Next stop this week is to our friends Mike, Sam, and Blue's Great American Shootout in Duncanville, TX for week 2 of July Madness!

San Diego Academic Camp

This week's recruiting trip to the Hoop Mountain Elite Student Athlete Prospect Camp held on the campus of University of California, San Diego was very productive. The Hoop Mountain guys always run a great camp and attract top tier academic student-athletes, which makes it convenient for schools like Trinity to know that each athlete we are watching is also focused on his academics. There were definitely a couple of players that we will continue watching through out this July period.
