This championship game came down to the last shot with Elite Tru Freshman pulling out the win. This team plays at a high level and has active hands on defense. They wear you down with pressure and the crash the boards hard to create second chance baskets. This program will upset a lot of teams this year.
Loyalty 1st is a team that has been under the radar but they are very elite and showed why they are the top program in Alabama. The was able to win the championship down the stretch cling the game out in the final minutes. I expect this team to end the season nationally ranked.
The nationally ranked North Mississippi Warriors cane to play at the MLK Classic. After a close game with the Kissimmee Wolfpack the Warriors handled business all the way to the championship. They got up early and never looked back and they showed why they are a top team in the country.
EP elite is a powerhouse program from Louisiana that fought hard to win the championship. This team has some very skilled players and can create turnovers and knock down 3’s very well. I expect this program to do nothing but get better and keep winning.
Kissimmee Wolfpack 3rd grade is a really well coached team that played some great basketball all weekend. These young players had good ball movement, ball handling, and finished well around the rim. I expect this team to win a lot of tournaments this year.
