Black Card & Platinum Cup Weekend Showcase Top Talent Nationally, 100+ recruiters
Adrenaline kicked off the summer events season with yet another sold out, must-attend Black Card and Platinum Cup weekend. Both events remain invite only, ensuring only the top players and programs compete in the showcase and tournament, respectively. These coupled events brought together the best teams nationally to battle in one location, which unsurprisingly attracted 100+ recruiters to the sidelines for a front row view. The likes of UNC, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Maryland, Denver, Towson, UPenn, Villanova, Dartmouth, and countless others watched as future prospects fought to earn a highly touted division title.
Twenty teams went undefeated on day one across six divisions, 2020s – 2025s. When it came time for the championship games, ten programs made it to the finals, including West Coast Starz (West), Sweetlax (FL), Texas Mustangs (TX), Team Slainte (MD), Team 91 (MD), Brotherly Love (PA), Edge (CAN), Looneys (MD), BBL Elite (NJ) and Tri-State (NJ). Six different programs left the fields with the hardware. Check out all the scores from the weekend on Tourney Machine here.
