"Pump-N-Run" is the name of a high school level summer basketball team in the U.S. also referred to as an "AAU team." AAU teams are very big in the U.S. for basketball players who want to get better with their skills and also to help get exposure in front of college scouts who offer scholarships to attend their college.
