Metro Sixers - BBall Spotlight Showcase in Atlantic City, NJ
March 31, 2013
The BBall Showcase decided to create a "SUPER POOL" of the top talented teams in the tournament to ensure they all got the toughest bump. This pool contained Team Izod (Ranked #1 by BBall Spotlight); DC Assualt (AAU 2012 6th Champions, Rank #3 by BBall Spotlight); Metro Sixers (M.I.T 2013 Champions, Ranked #4 by BBall Spotlight); and RENS (AAU Top 10 2012 - 6th Grade).
The Metro Sixers went second in the pool with a 2-1 record. The only lost of the tournament came at the hands of local talent DC Assault. All teams came out of pool play to play the winners of the other four respective pools.
The Sixers first round match-up was with New Heights of NY. The second round match-up was with Team Izod (who we defeated in pool play) to advance to the championship game with DC Assault (who we lost to in pool play).
The stage is now set for a rematch of the Metro Sixers and DC Assault for the championship. In a little more that 12 hours earlier, the Sixers lost to DC Assault and it was time to even the score. The Sixers got out fast and it was a track meet from start to finish. Metro Sixers defeated DC Assault.
Congratulations go out to the 7th Grade team for winning the BBall Spotlight Showcase.
