Phenom Hoops opened the new Rise Indoor Sports Complex with a bang with the Phenom Stay Positive, as teams came all throughout the region to come and compete for a championship. The talent was off the charts but only a few teams could be crowned champions.
To start the day off, we had the 12/13u Division tipping off as Garner Road and the Vikings battled it out. Both came in with strong resumes and young players to watch, but it was Garner Road that made a strong statement early, jumping out to a 24-14 lead at halftime. But Austin Jackson and company continued to battle, making it a closer game in the second half but Garner Road was just too balanced with their young talent, eventually taking home the 45-36 win.
Final: Garner Road West 12u 45 – Vikings 36
Austin Jackson 17
