BABC Wins 10th Grade AAU National Championship
The Boston Amateur Basketball Club's 10th grade team traveled to Louisville during the third and final week of the July evaluation period and came away with their latest Amateur Athletic Union national championship.
Played in the historic Freedom Hall, BABC knocked off the Albany City Rocks 50-44 in the final, their 5th match-up of the year after having previously met at the BasketBull National Invitational, twice at the Boston Shootout and first at the Boo Williams Invitational.
The win gives BABC their 18th national championship, 28th appearance in a national final and 46th appearance in a national final four. Perhaps most impressive though is that this is the fourth time in the last six years that BABC has won the AAU 10th grade national championship with previous titles in 2010, 2011, 2012 and another trip to the final four in 2013.
Led by head coach Brittney Papile, this year's squad went ten deep all season long including Jakigh Dottin, Jalyn Hinton, Javaughn Edmonds, Sherron Harris, Garrett Stephenson, Nicholas Osarenren, Caden Dumas, Martin Mann, Justin Mazzulla and Keyshaad Dixon.
The BABC 10th grade team finished season with a record of 71-6.
While the 10th grade team was in Louisville this week, the EYBL squad wrapped up their 2015 season with another strong showing in Las Vegas, advancing to the quarterfinals of the Fab 48 before falling to eventual champions, 1 Nation, featuring the nation's third ranked player Josh Jackson.
