Congratulations 8th Grade Boys Basketball Team - Wins the Battle of the Titans Tournament

The Colin Powell Middle School eight grade boys basketball team played very well over the weekend, Jan. 12-13, to win the Battle of the Titans Tournament held at Collins High School in Chicago.  On Saturday, Jan. 12th, they defeated Chicago Johnson and Chicago Kipp schools. On Sunday, they defeated Prairie Hills and the #1 ranked Ariel, who was previously undefeated.
 
Bryce Tillery did well controlling the offense, with scoring and he was also the assist leader.  Leirre Collier hit a 3 pointer within the last minute of the game.  Raeshom Harris played a great game on both ends of the court, he had a key steal and took MVP Honors of the tournament.  But, it was Xavier Sulaimans 3- point shot buzzer beater that secured the victory to beat the undefeated Ariel team in the Championship game.
 
Great Games......Great Tournament......Way to Go EAGLES!!!!
