AAU 17U Take The Under Armour "Are You From Here?" Championship!!!
The Rebels 17U team traveled to Dallas Memorial Day weekend to compete in Under Armour's, "Are You From Here?" Classic Tournament. After a slow start loosing the first game to Net Gain Sports (Minnesota) 75-69, the Rebels rallied back with a vengeance against Rashard Lewis' team, beating them 60-31. The Rebels continued their winning streak beating the Las Vegas Prospects (82-67), Under Armour's Baltimore Finest (54-44), SportsU (101-83), DC Assault (61-60), and ended up meeting Net Gain Sports again in the Championship game, defeating them 48-22 for the title!
The success was an entire team effort, with a strong leadership showing from Kevon Looney, DeAndre Harris, Demontrae Jefferson, David Burrell, and Branden Key.
Congratulations to the 17U basketball team!
