Hard Work Raps Up Productive Season

2023 Hard Work 
Hard Work Basketball 6th grade team had a great year going 42-12. The season was capped off with an AAU National Championship at the 2017 West Coast National Championship in Las Vegas, NV. The team went 6-0 in the tourney beating Michael Copper’s Two One Elite team in the final (46-40). The year saw 4 tourney championships and 3 runner-up showings. Some key wins came against (#14) TNBA East, (#16) JSBA 6th and JSBA 7th grade teams, and (#10) Miller Factory at the Dry Joyce Shooting Stars Classic. The team also had a tough 6-point loss to (#3) MVP Dynasty in the Championship game of the Keystone Hoops tourney in Erie, PA in June.

The team showed continued growth throughout the season. Adam Williams, Jyles Brandon, Sam Brown, and Patrick Williams all had great offensive seasons. While Tyrell Thompson and Tommie Benn set the tone defensively. Sam Brown’s significant growth had a huge impact late in the year growing from 5’7” last year to standing at 6’0” at the end of the season. The addition of Xavier Peterson late in the season also gave a tremendous boost to the team.

The team is primed and looking forward to a great 2018 season which will see them looking to travel more to face additional top-level competition. Key wins for Hard Work include: Miller Factory (53-49); TNBA East (41-33); JSBA 6th (48-38); JSBA 7th (57-55); Two One Elite - Nationals (46-40) Championship and Pool Play (53-35); Las Vegas Warriors – Nationals; and Golden City SF – Nationals.  Congratulations to Coach Antown Williams and his team for a great season!
