Interview with Coach Sitter:
How did you first hear about the Indi World Championships?
Brian Hershman called me and asked me to play.
Have you ever played in a tournament in San Diego before?
The actual tournament is very similar to any other tournament, the city of San Diego is one of the nicest places to go in the U.S., so it makes for a nice destination to play.
What excites you the most about playing in the Indi World Championships?
Competing against teams from all over the country.
Who are some of your top players?
Zaon Collins- 6'-0 Bishop Gorman High School
Will McClendon- 6'3 Bishop Gorman High School
Max Allen- 6'5 Class of 2022
What separates Vegas Elite from the rest of the AAU teams out there?
We are typically much smaller than most teams so we play a very fast paced style and shoot a lot of 3's.
If you could describe the Vegas Elite program and players in one word, what would it be?
