WE R 1 Gets It Done!
WE R 1 held on to a big early lead to defeat Philly Triple Threat 51-37 and win the Mid Atlantic 8th Grade AAU Regional Championship. Congrats to both teams for making it to the championship game.
Darius Kinnel Guard (WE R 1)- He had a tough shooting game in the finals but the powerful guard still made an impact. He’s able to penetrate which breaks down the defense and opens things up for teammates. On defense he pressures the ball and uses his strong frame to force the movement of ball handlers. He looks good playing with newcomer Antwan Butler.
Bernard Lightsey Guard (Philly Triple Threat)- Lightsey was lights out from the perimeter. This kid nailed 6 treys from deep and even hit the shots with hands flying his way. When PTT made their final run it was Lightsey leading the way banging home triples.
