The Cedar Valley CourtKings will open their 2019 training camp this Saturday, March 9 at their training facility at the Boys and Girls Club Gym in Waterloo.
A number of players from last year’s team will make a return to the CourtKings in 2019, including 2018 Midwest Basketball League MVP Brady Burford, as well as a legion of guards, including Mack Johnson, David Stanley, Queshawn Roby, Aundre Hicks and Anthony James.
Several new faces will don the purple and white this season as well, including a number of former college standouts. Among those college players is former Adams State guard/forward Jaree Crawford, who joins the CourtKings after averaging 11.2 point per game during his junior season with the Grizzlies.
Other players attending camp include former University of Massachusetts seven foot big man Isaac Freeman, Grand View Viking Kelvin Mackey and St. Thomas forward Jordan Burich. Southwest Oklahoma State’s Emeche Wells will join the team on the court as well, as will Chamar Wilson of Northeast Community College.
A pair of former Cedar Valley area high school standouts will also take to the court during camp, including former Cedar Falls Tiger Mitchell Hammer and former Union Knight Cael Lambe. The CourtKings have also signed former MBL Select forward Jared Sutherland to the team.
“I am extremely excited for this season, said CourtKings head coach Michael Mohlis. “I am looking for high energy and highly competitiveness with our guys. We have a good group of leaders back as well as bringing in more turnover from last season. This gives us a different group and ways to develop a new group to find roles.”
