|Murphy AC -TNBA Winter League Champs|
Kevin Jackson’s 6th grade Murphy AC squad soundly defeated The Truth Basketball Club 51-21 to capture the championship of TNBA’s Winter League at the Euclid Sports Plant in Euclid tonight. According to Jackson, “suffocating defense” and a “total team effort” accounted for the lopsided win. Earlier in the day, in the semi-final round, Murphy AC cruised by the Bedford Raiders (79-39).
Standout performers included Shamaar Morrow, Tevin Jackson, Alfonzo Gaffney and Darius Moss Jr. There is not much time to savor the victory, as Jackson’s team will compete in TNBA 2nd winter league session which starts next week, but this time, his team will be competing in the 7th/8th grade division. “We start league play next week to get ready for the NYBL,” said Jackson. Congratulations to the Murphy AC players and parents for a fantastic winter run. Also, look for the Murphy AC players to be participating in the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase in a couple of weeks.
