The Battle for the Bell: Gripper Games were a success. This was my first time seeing Philly Pride and K-Low Elite in-person this year and 15u teams exceeded my expectations. Pride 15u finished 2-0, Team Final went 1-1, and K-Low went 0-2, but all the games were exciting and the teams are loaded with talent.

The guard from Friends Central brought a competitive edge to the K-Low 15 squad. Versus Philly Pride, he had six steals which led to fastbreaks and easy buckets. Some were at the point of attack; others were as a help defender. That edge carried over to the second game. Even down double digits in the second half, he picked up Team Final’s PGs full-court, forcing a few turnovers. He averaged 12 points and 4 steals on the day.

His team was down early in game one against Pride. But D-Will delivered body blow after body blow by slashing to the basket, taking the game to the wire. His 21 points contribution featured a couple pull-up  threes
