Raleigh, NC / Woodbridge, VA / Loudoun, VA / Hyattsville, MD / Springfield, MA –  Seven of the NOVA Cavalier teams were in action this weekend.

15U-Lin and 16U Cavs participated in the USBA North Carolina State Championships at Raleigh, North Carolina this past weekend.  It was a successful all across for the Cavs, as Coach Dashti’s 16U team won the tournament and rolled off 4 consecutive wins!  Meanwhile, our 15U-Lin team finished 3-2 and lost in the Tournament final.  It was a fantastic weekend for both Cavs teams.

The 17U Cavs went up to Springfield, Massachusetts and played in the prestigious BasketBull Hall of Fame Spring Classic.  Coach Gray-Mendes’ team represented NOVA well, as they went 2-0 and finished first place in the pool play, before bowing in their first round game against Connecticut Basketball Club (CBC).
