Quality Warriors, Maryland Belles Headed to Orlando

DISTRICT HEIGHTS, MD – The Maryland Belles and Quality Warriors will represent the Mid-Atlantic Region at the Jr. NBA Global Championship in Orlando this August. The Belles topped GTS Fusion 50-42 in the Girls Championship Game while the Warriors bested defending Mid-Atlantic champions Slam City in the Boys Championship, 71-50.

Jadyn Donovan led the Maryland Belles with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists, including this nice alley-oop from teammate Sydney Anthony.

Head coach Talen Watson couldn’t be happier for her girls and the chance to face an international field in Orlando:

It’s pure joy and excitement for them. For most of them, this is their last opportunity to do something like this together. It’s bittersweet that they are growing up. I’m happy they get to go out on the highest note possible.
– Talen Watson, Maryland Belles

Amani Hansberry led the way for the Quality Warriors, totaling 27 points and 16 rebounds on Championship Sunday. Teammate Cameron Gillus chipped in 16 points against Slam City, including this bucket late in the fourth quarter.

Following the championship games, NBA Legend Harvey Grant presented individual awards to the players that best reflected the Jr. NBA core values of Determination, Teamwork, and Respect. Jadyn Donovan and Amani Hansberry were the recipients of the Determination Award for their standout performances. Jade Tillman and Bryson Moore were presented with the Teamwork Award, while Kiyoni McMiller and Matin Perdue got the Respect Award for exceptional sportsmanship throughout the weekend.
