Look who's back on Top!
Memorial Weekend Results:
Champions - Chosen Few
infamous Tigers Blue tournament brought out some heavy hitters. Including teams from the top ten, Wooreelitech, Pac Rim, Chosen
Few, and Tigers Blue. So who came out on top? Chosen Few has been looking to redeem themselves after being embarassed last
year in Vegas by Wooreelitech. And they did just that. Chosen Few got their swagger back by giving Woorelitech payback. They
also defeated the rest of the field to another tournament championship under their belt. Some of the teams were missing some
of their top players, but in asian basketball a win is a win.
Team rosters in asian basketball change like the
weather. Its not like the pros or college, because the committment to a team is never on paper or can be enforced. But your
team name and reputation is at stake every time you enter a tournament or league. So the teams that stay consistent and win,
you've got to give a lot of credit to. And Chosen Few has done that consistently every season with the leadership of point
man John Lane. Congrats you are now back on top.
Champions - Seatle Bladerunners
The 29th Annual Chinese Nationals
has a repeat champ! The Seatle Bladerunners win back to back championships. The Bladerunners do not play in a lot of tournaments,
but the play in the Chinese Nationals on a regular basis. They have dominated the Chinese basketball scene for quite some
time. Will they ever go out and play in other tournaments? Waits to be seen. Are they as good against other asian races like
they are against the Chinese. We think so, but we will never know unless they play in more tournaments.

Woo! Who? The new #1
team in the country!
The name is WooreeLitech, and they are the fastest rising team in asian basketball. A team
that has been a powerhouse on the Korean National Tournament scene, is now the #1 team in the country! After beating some
top name teams within the last two years, such as Chosen Few and Dreamleague. This team consists of mostly Korean players
and are built mainly to win the Korean Nationals thats held every two years. This year the Korean Nationals is held in Chicago,
Illinois. But whats makes this team dangerous is there size and deep talented bench. With more than 7-8 players around or
over 6'4 they can wear out teams just by their size. We will see if this team will come and showcase themselves in the
Asian Nationals this year in Atlanta. But you will definetly remember name WooreeLitech from now on!
