EBB 15U Brings Home Their 1st Championship from the Mass Jaguars Hoops Challenge
-This weekend was the start of something GREAT for the EBB 15U team. In the last couple of tournaments they have come close to winning their first Championship, but just couldn’t get over the hump. This weekend the young men of EBB came in with a mission of not being denied their first Championship of the season. In order to complete their mission they had to go through 5 teams in 2 days. Their first game against Berkshire Elite was a demonstration of the defensive aggressiveness of the 15U team, limiting the Elite to 28 points, while scoring 56 off of constant pressure leading to easy baskets. Their next game was a test of how really bad they wanted to complete their mission. It was a back and forth game against a tough and talented Mass Trailblazers squad that gave the young men from EBB all they could handle, but in the end EBB prevailed 68-64 and onto the Semis against the Western Mass Cagers. In the Semis EBB, despite being a little sluggish, pulled away for a 64-50 victory and onto the Championship Game against the CT Stars. EBB put a stamp on what their mission was early and often, pulling away for a 55-40 victory and bringing home their first and the programs fifth Championship of the season. EBB 15U a perfect example of: HARDWORK and DEDICATION paying off!!!!!!!!!!!
