Ballers heat things up by winning tournaments in Hot-lanta

As if the summer could not get any better for the Camden-based Team Ballers AAAU youth basketball franchise, a pair of the squads closed out a memorable 2012 summer campaign by capturing a pair of championship in the End of Summer Youth Championship Tournament, sponsored by Tournaments R Us, in Atlanta on Aug. 3-5.
The SC Ballers, the 12-and-under squad, won their division title while the T2 Ballers, made up of players ages 14-and-under, took the crown in their age division.
The T2 Ballers are a new team which was added to the Ballers roster, which had a championship showing earlier in the summer in Charlotte.
Willie Dubose, the founder/coach and director of the franchise, said he could not have been any more proud of all the teams which, in addition to playing winning basketball on the court, also helped lend a hand in several community service projects in and around the county. He thanked all those associated with the teams for their help during the year, especially for his young men who played the games.
“These teams didn’t play for me and they didn’t play for the coaches,” Dubose said. “They went out there and played for one another; they didn’t rely on just one player. I am so proud of them for that.”
