Prep Hoops went to Columbia, SC this past Saturday and attended a workout for the Upward Stars Southeast programs. The teams from Upward Stars Southeast have yet to play in the Palmetto State this AAU season. The Upward Stars Southeast organization will be heading to the Big Apple this coming week to compete in the Adidas Finale.
The Upward Stars organization set up scrimmages with PSB Elite (Charlotte area) on Saturday. The event was a great tune up for the NCAA Live Period.
