|New Birth Warriors-Beavercreek Stars Thanksgiving Tournament Champions|
Scott Bradley’s New Birth Warriors program has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success for over a decade. With his team’s 3-1 title run at the Beavercreek Stars Thanksgiving Shootout this past weekend in Beavercreek, it’s clear Bradley’s program is poised for yet another successful campaign. After dropping a close game in pool play to the Centerville Hustle (42-41), New Birth avenged their lone loss in the championship game, defeating Centerville 41-32 to claim the 6th grade title.
Playing well for the Warriors were Majadi Cunningham (5’5/CG/Columbus/2023) and Alex Styles (5’11/C/Pickerington/2023), who averaged 13 and 11 points, respectively over 4 games. Bradley’s team is well built, boasting a starting line-up that includes Cunningham, Styles, Davion Bridges (5’6/WG/Columbus/2023), Juwan Turner (4’6/PG/Columbus/2024) and Bedi Lori (5’6/WF/Caldwell/2023), all of whom are lised among the state’s elite on our Player Watch Lists.
Although Bradley has had some very talented teams over the past several years, he’s excited about this squad. “I love this team. There’s no egos; they knock down shots; they’re a very good team,” said Bradley. You can catch the Warriors in action later this week when they take on the Dublin Ballers. We plan to keep an eye on this team.
