A 69-57 victory against the Houston Hawks earned Urban ASAK its 8th tournament victory in a season that included live period championships in the adidas Silver Gauntlet, the GASO, and now the GMI.

Darius McBride was named MVP of the tournament after a string of 20+ point games. The 2019 shooting guard also earned another accolade this weekend – a scholarship offer from Hartford on Sunday just four days after picking up an offer from Brown.

Urban ASAK also received great efforts from guards Jamal Shead and Anthony Scott and the team as a whole played exceptional defense, as well. ASAK allowed fewer than 50 points in three of the final four games they played and won by 20 or more points twice in the tournament.

Next on the schedule is a trip out to Duncanville for another Great American Shootout.

Champions! Urban ASAK wins final 2 games to secure GASO title

rrgasochamps
After dropping the first game against Team Faith, Urban ASAK roared back with four consecutive wins on their way to a bracket championship trophy.

Urban ASAK is once again a champion after taking down UC Hoops in the semifinal and the Rim Rockers in the title game.

At first, it didn’t look like the team would secure a spot in the championship game. Urban ASAK trailed UC Hoops in the semifinal by as many as 15 points before the team settled in and played its brand of basketball – defense, rebounding and ball movement. Not only did ASAK catch up to UC Hoops, but they ended up winning by a comfortable 15-point margin, 84-69.

Jamal Shead led the team in scoring for that game with 22 points and Darius McBride followed with 15.

The championship game went a little differently. Urban ASAK got out to an early lead and controlled the tempo for the first half, but relented a bit in the first few minutes of the second half. However, McBride came alive and provided the team the offensive boost it needed, scoring 15 of his 27 points in the second half to lift ASAK over Level Up 69-60.

The team’s second leading scorer was Shead, who finished with 12, followed by Shasirae Harvey and Sam Latham with nine each.
