For the 3rd year in a row, CAVS 12U swept the championship this past weekend at the Sixers 19th Annual Basketball Bonanza in sunny, usually hot (although not all that warm this time) Palm Springs. Not only did they win the championship, but Coach Darryl McDonald was awarded a special plaque for the coach with the most wins for their series of tourneys! That plaque (as our usual championship coach trophies do) was, in turn, awarded to a player who gave up that strong effort and CAVS defense. We’ll get back to that in a minute. Right now…let’s go.
Saturday, would be no different (well, except for the late, Taco-Bell-third-meal hours) as 12U defeated M.O.C., 73-19.
Congrats to all of the boys who played their hearts out!! Together, the CAVS brought down the heat. No pun intended. We see you Alazar and Kyle!! Pearson Parker’s memorable 5-second call on California Heat was priceless, know what I mean? However, it was Brian Devereaux who stepped it up this weekend to earn the special Coach’s Award plaque (in place of the usual championship trophy) for bringing forth extra effort in defense, baseline drives, sportsmanship and accountability. Congrats, Brian Devereaux!!!
