Good article on Louisiana AAU scene and its newest developments


LINK

Just read through this and I think it is a very solid read on the new and exciting front of AAU Basketball in Baton Rouge.

He talks about how the change could help LSU and national exposure of Louisiana Athletes.

Good read, thanks for the link.

I had cancelled my scout sub a while back, but I'm really close to picking it back up. They're doing good things over there.

When it comes to basketball, they are miles ahead of the competition.

That's because they picked up our guy from here.

For a while, this board was the go to for basketball info. Bubba had the most to do with it, obviously. But other people joined in to do meticulous searches based on the info he provided and we were able to build a pretty good info stream.

After reading that article, the future looks bright for the Red Storm and LSU recruiting.

Yea. Bubba does good stuff, but I am also really impressed with Ben Love and the work he does there. He follows the team more than the recruiting, but here he did a very good job painting a picture of \ AAU basketball in Louisiana.

I'm considering getting a scout sub as well. Too much basketball info behind a wall.

Only problem I have is paying $9 a month for just some basketball info.

I mean how many premium tidbits or articles do they write about basketball over a month's span when it's not basketball season?

Smart move by scout's LSU site. LSU b ball recruiting news was damn near non existent until they came through and crushed the buildings.

Coach Pixley deserves nothing but great things. Glad to see his work being recognized.

I was involved with the Catholic High basketball program in the mid to late 2000's and a lot of the players were going and playing for the Red Storm which was small AAU program. It amazes me how much it has exploded and how big of a program Pixley has created. Getting a Nike contract and all, I would have never imagined! Clearly the guy knows what he is doing!
