ASA 9U and 11U had terrific weekends representing our program in the Massachusetts State Tournament. 9U played their hearts out going 1-1 in pool play, defeating MYCW in the first game of bracket play before falling to a talented RI Crush team in the Final Four. This group of youngsters as they have done all season played great team ball and inspired defense. In the process of advancing to the Final Four — they qualified AAU Nationals.

11U lead by Coach Alex Giangregorio are the Massachusetts Division 2 State Champions. This squad was tested throughout the weekend dropping the first game of the tournament to the NE Storm, before winning 3 straight games vs Mass Elite (twice) and New Bedford Hoops. The stage was now set for a rematch with NE Storm in the Finals. ASA outplayed the Storm from start to finish to hang on to 45-44 win. This is the first State Championship for ASA, the entire staff is extremely proud of this group of players and parents. Job well done…
