Lehigh Valley Knights earns Automatic bid to next years 2008 Division II National Championship in Little Rock Arkansas.



REVIEW:



In Little Rock Arkansas at the 2007 AAU Basketball Division II National Tournament for U15 Grade 9 boys...

The Lehigh Valley Knights represented The Middle Atlantic very well. After regular pool play on Monday and Tuesday, the Knights were placed into the Classic playoff bracket among 25 other National Division II teams. The competition was fierce, but the Knights ended up winning 4 straight games, leading us to the championship game on Friday afternoon! Unfortunately, we did not win the championship game, but we played very hard, and lost to an exceptional team from Georgia who actually pulls their roster of boys from 8 different High schools all over the state of GA.   In fact, throughout the entire tournament, we were up against All-Star teams and teams that pulled the “best of the best” players from all over their perspective States. I am proud that the Lehigh Valley Knights pull “our best” from a 5 mile radius…! 7 out of the ten players are from Orefield, PA and the other 3 are from Allentown and Coplay. It is really quite incredible, and a little like a Cinderella story, reaching the final four and championship game of this National Tournament. The Knights certainly helped to put Lehigh Valley Basketball on the map! The boys walked away with a nice trophy, metals, and an automatic bid to the Division 2 tourney again next year.
