Dang wat happened to the Falcons last night? They just got destroyed! It seemed like all the odds were against them last night. It was New Orlean's day. A day to celebrate and a day to remember. Nobody probably would have beaten the Saints last night. It was good for the city that went through so much and still going through a lot. Sometimes sports is needed to help forget some of life's sorrows. Sports is never as important as life. But it can also be good therapy. At least that what it seemed like to those people in that area.

We would like to remember the victims of 9/11. And also we would like to give a thank you, and a prayer to all the men and women who serve this country, so that we may have all the freedoms that we enjoy. We are all fortunate to live in a country that gives opportunities that others do not have. So we must thank God for all our blessings.
 
 
Dreamleaugue.org's Asian National Championship maybe the most professional asian invitational in the country. This tournament of champions does not offer prize money, but offers so much more. Talent and outstanding teams. We at asianballers.net seek out to find as many teams that we do not know about as possible. With our staff and scouts we use them as our eyes and ears to evaluate new teams that were unknown to us. We will continue to do the research and send our people to more events to find more teams that are unknown and make them known. LA Showtime out of California put an impressive showing in last weekend's invitational, deserving of their current #1 ranking. There were many competitive teams at this tournament. Lots of size, height, athletic ability, and team skills were on display in Vegas. We will have a more thorough wrapup coming soon. But Congratulations to Showtime for finishing #1 and Shootout for taking second. Good job to all the teams for a very entertaining tournament.

High Point, NC tournament Congrats to Ohio!! The new #1 team in the country. Proving that the win at the Atlanta Classic was justified. With a deep bench and great shooting, this team deserves the #1 ranking! Also good job to Teddy Bears for placing 2nd. Good tournament with 18 teams. The level of play has picked in the North Carolina region. All the teams played hard and there are new teams to watch out for.
 
Appleton, Wisconsin - Congrats to The Great for winning their second tournament of the year moving them into the top 15. As always Fosho was contending for another championship, finishing second. Tournament had 13 teams.

We will find out soon enough!! Good luck to everyone!
