BEAVERTON, OR: Dynasty Red 2023 and the Evolution Greyhounds took home the hardware at the Northwest Regional on Sunday, earning the right to represent the region in Orlando at the Jr. NBA Global Championship August 6-11 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.
Dynasty Red 2023 used a balanced offensive attack to dismantle a very formidable Seattle Rotary team. With four players contributing 12 or more points, there were plenty of good performers, but Adrian Mosley stood out among the rest. With his imposing size and calm style of play, Mosley racked up a double-double with 12 points and 13 boards in the final game of the day.
Players on the west coast know how to shoot from beyond the arc. After Issac Martinez dropped 10 threes in the West last week, Isabel Sullivan led the Greyhounds with 20 points while going 6/8 from downtown. In a rematch of last year’s girls Northwest championship game, Evolution had their revenge over Tree of Hope with a commanding 54-35 victory.
Mosley and Malia Samuels of the Greyhounds earned the Determination Award for the girls. Malachi Bradley from Alaska TruGame and Mjracle Sheppard of Evolution were each given the Respect Award. And finally, Mason Williams of Seattle Rotary and Katie Fiso of Tree of Hope took home the Teamwork Award.
