GMAC madness

Coming up at the end of the month is the 2nd annual GMAC Madness Tournament.

Well, that's what I've nicknamed it. The GMAC boys' basketball tournament that will again feature Gold and Silver Division 16-team brackets.

And I hear that a 16-team girls' tourney is in the works for next season.

Brackets will be revealed in a couple of weeks.

Hoop talk

With holiday hoops almost wrapped up what's been the biggest surprise of the first half of the boys' basketball season in Dade?

-Miami Springs, which has wins over Northwestern, Pace and Miami High, and nearly beat Norland.

-Norland, which is 13-2 in spite of losing Player of the Year Zachery Peacock.

-Northwestern, which is also tearing it up despite losing star guard Bertram Stracham.

-Pace struggling lately in spite of having one of its best teams in years.
