Lady Pro Skills are the new comers on the AAU scene that made some noise in their 1st year as a team. Based out of Dallas, Tx this team is fairly young featuring a lot of rising stars that are more than capable of being Division 1 players. Earl Rooks is not only the Head Coach but he is also their trainer. That entity as a trainer, is called Full Throttle Basketball. In all of the training sessions PTB has been to, their intense, non-stop, repetition, and pushing as hard as you can go, transfers over into results on the court.
The teams turning point came at Nike TOC in Chicago where they picked up a signature win against the Georgia Metros. Pro Skills eventually won the championship in the top bracket after being down by eight with two minutes to go. That same momentum carried over to Basketball on the Bayou where they played top heavy teams like Essence Purple and Team Elite Pointer. They may not have came out with a win against those teams but they competed and showed up to play with over 70 college coach’s watching. That’s a win in itself.
