The Junior Suns were out in full force for an early morning practice at the Nap & Barb Lawrence Gymnasium.
A few missed baskets to start practice, but these future first-round draft picks turned up the heat and started making shots from across the floor.
"Our record's not the best, but we're still a pretty good team," Max told us. But don't sell these guys short.
Avery had quite the compliment when he talked about his fellow Suns. "They're nice."
And then there's Julia. The only girl on the team, but she can hold her own. She lead the way during defensive shuffle drills, but told us that she prefers offense. She only "sorta" likes defense.
Number 65 caught our attention. His name: Jordan. His skill level: Hopes to be able to dunk like Michael Jordan in seven years.
After a physical rebounding drill, the Junior Suns wrapped up their practice with a shooting elimination game. Julia had all of the boys beat, until Max came through at the end.
