|Dayton Wolves-2021 USBA American Division Champions|
This past weekend Coach Tony Dixon’s 7th grade Dayton Wolves Squad made the trek to Charlotte, NC to participate in the USBA National Championships. After finishing 1-2 in pool play with losses to Team Power (58-50) and the Georgia Stars (40-41) and a win over the Charlotte Dragons (52-34), Dixon’s team made a 3-0 run in the American Division of the tournament to capture the crown. Dayton’s run to the championship included wins over the Diamond City All-Stars (72-59), NC Flames (57-50) and the WB Jaguars (41-17). It’s important to note that the Wolves’ pool was absolutely stacked, as the 2 teams they lost to made it to the semi-finals (Team Power) and finals (Georgia Stars)! North Carolina’s Team United won the National division with a 62-53 win over the Georgia Stars. It could be legitimately argued that the top 3 teams in the tournament were placed in the same pool. Standouts for the Wolves included Chance Amerson (5'9/SG/Trotwood) and Anthony McComb (5'8/SG/Dayton). Congratulations to Coach Dixon, his players and parents for a job well done!
