ENG United 15U Wins By 32 In Ryze Hoops Spring League Opener

In preparation for the 2021 national travel basketball circuit, ENG United 15U (2024) boys kicked off the season Wednesday night with a 69-37 win over the Cartersville Canes 2023 team in the RYZE Hoops Spring League 16U division.

Wednesday's game at LakePoint Sports also marked the first game ever played by an ENG United team. Thanks to smothering team defense, and solid offensive execution, ENG United got out to an early lead against the Canes and never looked back. Led by the scoring efforts of Charles Kimani (25pts), Jace Freeman (13pts), Gabriel Mason (11pts), and Marquan Murray (10pts), ENG's season opener was a decisive team win.

The team's next RYZE Hoops Spring League game will take place on Wednesday, March 24th @ 8:15pm versus North GA 16U at LakePoint Sports Complex, Court 1. The game will be streamed live online via the Playsight app.

Atlanta Xpress 2024 Is Now ENG United

We are proud to announce that we will no longer be known as Atlanta Xpress 2024, and instead will compete as ENG United Basketball Club in the Prep Hoops circuit for the 2021 NCAA Live Recruitment periods.

After three successful seasons with Atlanta Xpress on the Under Armour Future circuit, the move to launch ENG United for the high school journey was not an easy one.

"While we appreciate the amazing opportunity given us by AX, we felt it would be in the best interests of our players and staff to continue our a grassroots basketball journey independently," says ENG United's Founder & Head Coach - Shaine Freeman.

Coach Shaine states, "When the 2020 coronavirus pandemic forced us to sit out the eighth-grade travel season, we used that downtime to evaluate our team's vision for the 15U-17U high school years. We quickly realized that we needed to pursue a more suitable option for our team, and felt that launching ENG United was the right move.  We are excited to continue our journey as one of Georgia's top grassroots basketball teams, with the same goal of helping our talented and high-academic student-athletes secure college scholarships."

ABOUT PREP HOOPS CIRCUIT:   Prep Hoops Circuit is the largest independent league in American grassroots basketball. Prep Hoops provides independent programs an opportunity to compete against the best teams in the country, while gaining exposure to college coaches at the NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA levels.
