Thank you to all of the AZ Elite Volunteers and the incredible management at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

University of Phoenix Stadium after the Champions were crowned.

It takes thousands of hours to successfully run the 2017 Gauntlet.  It started long before tipoff and culminated in three days of intense basketball action in front of 200 college recruiters.  The only way this can happen is with the combined efforts of the countless volunteers, support personnel and the gracious staff and management at the University of Phoenix Stadium.  Thank you all so much for contributing your time and energy into the tournament.  As you can see in our Twitter feed, your commitment to our club and our players was noticed by many. Again, thank you.
