Conclusion

I have attempted to give a brief recap of each game played in this tournament.  I apologize in advance for any misspelled names or errors in stats as I hurriedly transcribed the statistics from the scoresheets.  This report is meant to be an overview of the tournament and not an instrument for ascertaining precise individual records. 

Congratulations to the Northern Kentucky Hawks, Derek Smith All-Stars 16 U, and Derek Smith All-Stars 17 U for capturing their respective divisions in a hotly contested weekend of basketball.
