Wolves Capture National Championship

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!
