Monday's opening night brought the boys face to face with Mass Elite from Boston. After a back and forth affair that left the youngsters with deficit heading into the 4th quarter, the team caught fire and moved on to a 38-33 win.
Day 2 brought a morning match up against the Stamford Peace from Stamford, Connecticut. After battling hard for three quarters, the boys found themselves in the hole again heading into the final frame. Like the game before, the team dug deep and exploded for a 17 point fourth quarter on their way to a 33-28 win.
In the afternoon of Day 2, the team came out strong as it rolled to a 10-6 lead at the end of one. However, we couldn't keep the momentum going, as the team eventually fell to David West's Garner Road Bulldogs of Raleigh, NC.
Wrapping up pool play, the boys squared off against New World Basketball of Virginia. A trip to the Championship Bracket was on the line as the teams battled for the invitation. From the start, Brevard Elite came out with an aggressive attack as the boys knew what was on the line. With tough defense and unselfish offense, the boys cruised to a 30-8 halftime lead and sailed right into Thursday's championship round game against Ohio's Buckeye Prep Basketball team.
Great job, Brevard Elite 2021. We are so proud of you.
