The 17U AAU Super Showcase Gold Division is one of the top events in the country during every Summer Live Period. College coaches flock to the ESPN Wide Word of Sports at the Disney Complex in Florida.
NY Lightning has always done very well at this event in the past and this year was no exception.
It did not start out well for the Lightning. They lost two one point games in pool play which placed them to the Classic Bracket rather than the Championship Bracket where they can be usually be found. They went on to win all three of their games and the closest any team came to them was 16 points. NY Lightning left Florida with the National AAU Super Showcase 17U Gold Classic Championship. Another AAU Championship banner to be hung on the walls of Island Garden!
