Matrix AAU Basketball: Matrix Highlights: Matrix 9U Black Wins March Madness Championship

Monday, March 31
Matrix 9U Black Wins March Madness Championship
In their first official AAU tournament, the Matrix 9U Black (4th grade) AAU team took home first place at the Flames March Madness tournament, held at the Capital Sports Complex in District Heights, MD. 

In their first tournament test at the AAU level, the Matrix 9U Black team came out very strong on Saturday morning and kept up the pace throughout the weekend to capture the tournament title.  The Matrix used pressure defense, a relentless fast break, and great outside shooting to defeat the Columbia Ravens, PV Classics, and Maryland Mavericks by a combined score of 115-21 over three games. 

Each player on the team contributed to the victories, as the girls played unselfish team basketball and demonstrated good sportsmanship. 

The Matrix 9U Black team will return to action next weekend at the Fairfax Stars Tournament of Champions.
