The Truth Secures Game Changing Sponsor

2015 The Truth
In 1997, Mark Twain quipped, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” Last week when we alluded to the fact that the 2023 Truth might be the team most negatively affected by the departure of three of their top players to the North Coast Blue Chips, it was assumed then that The Truth [ranked 21st in AAU Power Rankings] might have relinquished their position among the elite.  Fast forward 1 week and we have learned that with sponsorship of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Moe Williams, The Truth has a new lease on life based on  the return of Adisa "Desh" Molton II, Jayvion Moore and Cody Head, all key pieces to The Truth’s enormous success last season.

According to Coach Andre Wheeler, Sr, he and the Cleveland guard’s long-standing friendship has resulted in an agreement, wherein The Truth will run as Mo Williams Academy Elite (MWA) during the upcoming 2016 season. Williams’ MWA organization is Texas-based; Nike affiliated, and has a history of success. In fact, last season, MWA’s U-17 high school squad participated in the Under Armor Association Circuit, but will join Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League starting in 2016. With the addition of a second major sponsor in Mo Williams, coupled with the return of the three aforementioned players, Wheeler is both excited and confident The Truth will be back on top come March. “I think we will be the top team in the state,” said Wheeler.

When we post our preseason Power Rankings in early March, MWA Elite should be well represented near the top.  Needless to say, when MWA Elite and the North Coast Blue Chips hook up at the Buckeye Prep Invitational tournament in April [super pool], no extra motivation will be required.  We plan to be front and center for that one!
