NYBL's Deron Williams Elite Wins NOLO Super 60

Deron Williams Elite-NOLO Super 60 Champs

When Coach Josh Woodson’s Deron Williams Elite squad arrives here in Columbus this weekend for the NYBL finals, they will arrive with a lot of confidence as the team just went undefeated on their way to the championship of the NOLO Super 60, one of the biggest and most prestigious tournaments in the country. To win the title, D-Will had to take down the Arkansas Warriors and SELA Warriors in pool play; followed by the Arkansas Hawks (+20), Jacksonville Magic, I-10 Celtics (by 13) and the Memphis War Eagles (50-44) in bracket play.

The leading scorers for Woodson’s team were Reese Maxey, DeVion Harmon and Chris Harris Jr. It should be noted that all three players have logged in standout performances during the last 2 sessions of the NYBL and should all have good odds of making the NYBL All-Star Game in September. Defensively, Marcus McLanahan, Terry Woods and Andrew Pitts reportedly got it done for D-Will. According to coach Woodson, “it was a great team effort in New Orleans and hopefully we can carry the momentum to Columbus for session 3!” Congrats to Coach Woodson, his players, parents and fans for representing the NYBL so well!
