The Team Trae Young boys took the trip north from Norman to Omaha over the weekend to open Adidas 3SSB Circuit play against some of the best teams from around the nation.

The 17U group was led by Carlsheon Young, who continued to turn heads at the outset of his final grassroots season, averaging nearly 20 points per game (19.8) over the four games for TTY.

The Team Trae 17s tipped off the tourney with a 72-70 loss to Arkansas Hawks on a buzzer-beating three.

The defeat came despite 16 points and four rebounds from Young, 14 from Jalen Haynes, 12 points, four rebounds and a pair of assists from Jaylen Lawal and 10 points and two assists from Damario Adams.

Saturday’s action began with a 71-63 loss to Indiana Elite despite standout performances from Young and Lawal, who combined for 55 of TTY’s 63 points in the game.

Another hard fought game with Austin Rivers SE Elite capped Saturday, but ended up in a 65-61 loss. Once again Carlsheon Young showed out with 21 points and Jax Kerr complemented it with his best performance of the weekend with 12 points, seven rebounds and a pair of blocks. Damario Adams added 10 points and six rebounds.

In the final game of the weekend for the 17s, Atlanta Celtics came out on top 65-53 despite 19 more points from Young and a big game from Dakotah Terrell, who scored 11 points and had six rebounds.
