The White Shirts won the Top Dawg Division and $2,000 grand prize at Dawg Days Basketball 2019

White Shirts Win $2,000 Grand Prize At Dawg Days Tourney

Although the Top Dawg division field was very small in terms of quantity of teams, there was no shortage of talent on the court. All three teams that entered the bracket had a legitimate crack at taking home the $2,000 grand prize. In the end, it was tournament newcomer White Shirts doing what numerous other teams have been unable to do since the inception of the tournament. The tournament’s most notable and dominant team, the Canton Ballers, would advance to the championship round for the twelfth time in fourteen years. In their previous eleven trips to the championship series, they had won nine times and lost only twice. Both losses were one possession games in game 3 of the best of three series, and many of the wins, including the last two, were in similar dramatic fashion. There would be no drama on this day however, as the White Shirts left no doubt as to  who the best team on the court was this year.

Details Sweep High School Divisions In Dawg Days 2019

A first-round pool play game between Details and TCB turned out to be a foreshadowing of things to come in the high school division. In a hard fought, back and forth affair, Details were able to overcome some hot shooting from Bryce Biggs (10 points) to defeat TCB 30-27. Jalen Wenger (18 points) scored several tough baskets down the stretch to help Details overcome a late deficit to win the game.

Hiland Runs Away With Back To Back League Titles

Hiland Alumni entered the semifinals of the men’s summer league tournament as the prohibitive favorite after having only had one true challenge throughout the entire summer. Their comeback win against CIX Direct during the regular season, coupled with some key injuries, gave teams some hope that maybe there were some chinks in the armor. After multiple years of championship game heartbreak, Hiland was looking to put the wraps on their second consecutive league title and first undefeated season.

Alumni Team Hangs On For Third Consecutive Title

Although they have won two of the three titles since the inception of the league, the Alumni team has never gone through the entire league season undefeated. The league veterans entered the semifinal round with a 7-0 record this year and seemed like a sure bet to roll to their third straight championship.

Area Hoopsters Shine In 3 On 3

What some call the “purest form of basketball” was on display from after dawn to just after dusk on Saturday at Dalton’s Village Green Park, where 180 players, ages 8 to 45, turned out for the 13th annual Dawg Days 3 on 3 basketball tournament.

“It’s non-stop, physical basketball with great competition,” said Tim Vandervaart, whose Canton Ballers successfully defended their title in the Top Dawg Division for the third year in a row and pocketed the $2,000 first-place prize. “There’s a lot of strategy, and matchups are huge. You can’t have a weak link.”
