Nubians Advance to Championship Game
On another note, the Lady Nubians notched another win tonight to punch their ticket to the championship game. When I left at halftime, Africentric held a comfortable 21-11 lead. However, the Berwick Bulldogs made a huge comeback to force overtime. Despite their effort, the Lady Bulldogs went down in defeat by 5 points. Africentric will play Monroe for the City League Middle School Championship. I have to admit, I was really impressed with the play of the Nubian's Dayuna Johnson, a little guard with a ton of talent and a pit bull attitude. I have seen her play twice and both times I left the gym really impressed. The Eagles got a big night from Armani Burke who finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
