Lauren Hill passes away from brain cancer

It’s hard to believe that one person could make such a positive impact like Lauren Hill did. The freshman basketball player at the College of Mount St. Joseph who fought DIPG, an incurable and fatal brain cancer, did just that.
She changed the way we think, she brought the entire nation together to join her in the fight for a cure, and to be honest, she has done more good for society in the last 6 months than most of us do in a lifetime.
Lauren Hill passed away overnight, ending the pain and suffering she has gone through since her diagnosis over a year ago. And while she knew that her diagnosis wasn’t going to change, the amazing thing about Lauren is that all she wanted to do was help others. It wasn’t about helping herself, it was about helping another person who will develop this deadly cancer. All she wanted to do was help others. That’s what Lauren Hill was all about.
She helped raise over $1M dollars for DIPG research, in the hopes that they would eventually find a cure. Some say Lauren lost her battle with cancer. No she didn’t. She fought when the doctors said she wouldn’t make it to Christmas, and she recently celebrated Easter. She fought  for several months before it took her physical body. She fought like hell, and while she is no longer with us, she has left her legacy. A legacy that proclaimed Lauren Hill a winner…a champion…. a fighter.
It’s not how long you live, it’s how you live.

Summer Basketball Events

Summertime may be a time for no homework, sleeping in, and hitting the beach, but for basketball players it is a time to transcend into a better player. A great player is not made during the season, they are made during the summer.

I will be posting several events as I get them right here, so make sure you check out the website every couple of days to find out what is going on this summer!

June 4-7: Hoop Through Life: NOTE: NEW DATE AND LOCATION- This unique camp combines teaching basketball skills and  four core elements: Communication, Wellness, Community and Heart.

AAU / Travel Ball page is now up

With the conclusion of the high school season, attention can be turned to the AAU and “travel ball” season. Everyone in Ohio (7th grade team and older) can submit your roster and schedule to be posted on the 2015 page found here: https://jimdabbelt.wordpress.com/2015-aau-travel-team-info/.

This is a great way for college coaches and fans to keep up with who is playing where this spring and summer. If you are a coach and would like to add your info, please contact me at jmdabbelt@aol.com. If you are the “team parent” or just a parent of an AAU player, make sure you check with your coach to get their info in to me as soon as possible.

It was a clean sweep at the state tournament

For the first time in OHSAA girls basketball state tournament history, the Southwest Ohio district swept all four state championship games, including three teams from the Dayton area.

Lakota West won the D1 title, while from Dayton, Kettering Alter won D2, Versailles D3 and Fort Loramie D4 to make it a clean sweep in this area.
