Macomb, MI: That was the theme for the Inaugural UTR (UNDER the RADAR) Showcase at Macomb College Sunday afternoon. Nearly one hundred student athletes and dozens of DII, DIII, NAIA & JUCO Coaches were in attendance to see players participate in a wide variety of offensive and defensive drills to emphasize the basic but important concepts that make you a great player. Communication, focus, effort and the ability to shoot the ball were some key points of emphasis.
Two players that generated quite a bit of buzz throughout the day were Carly McCrum 2021 Bay City, MI (John Glenn HS) & Meagan Tucker 2021 Howell, MI (Howell HS)
