Once again, it's 12U Warriors - Holt, old blood of Houston's best youth programs, trumping the elite from America's playground. It is the Warriors "WE BELIEVE" movement that helped the Warriors secure its 49-27 victory over the storied organziation, Team Izod in the NOLA Primetime Super 60 Final Four on this Memorial Monday.
The starting five led the way with a solid defensive effort that limited the explosive Team Izod to a miserable morning. The Warriors reserves added to the misery by keeping up the same defensive pressure.
It was the Warrior's defense that won this game, suffocating Team Izod with size in the interior and athleticism. The Warriors had some key steals and forced many turnovers, and limited IZOD to a miserable a low percentage shooting from the field.
With the win, Coach Lamar Holt's Warriors will face off in the 12U Gold bracket championship game against the CG Wolves, a familiar powerhouse from North Texas at 1pm.
