Saturday nights Silver American Division was the perfect conclusion to the first day of action at the Excel Winterfest.  A division so evenly matched with talent that it literally came down to the last round of games. With the Marcos Soto Blue Devils in the position to win yet another champion all they needed was a victory over the hungry Anthony Caldwell Dream Loudly Boomers.  All this while the Cap City Elite of Austin waited anxiously for the outcome. The tension as the Gervin Academy couldn’t be any higher.

The DL Boomers and Blue Devils dazzled the capacity gym. The Boomers jumped out to an early lead led by anchor Aidan Wollenzier and great guard play by Keith Davis II. The Blue Devils would fight back with clutch play by Markie Soto. When the dust cleared the Dream Loudly Boomers would get the job done led by Wollenzier’s 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The DL Boomers win by 12 points catapulted the Cap City Elite into a 2nd Place finish. The Cap City Elite had beat the Boomers earlier in the evening but lost in overtime to the Blue Devils in their opening game.  Steven Oneal’s 15 points and 6 assists in the that victory against the Boomers was crucial . You can see why Oneal’s favorite player is Derrick Rose of the NBA Chicago Bulls. His ability to get to the basket and finish kept his team is the game against a division full of talented guards.

This was truly a division that could be played ten times and the outcome would be different every time. This time the night belonged to the Dream Loudly Boomers and Cap City Elite.
