Team Final prevails over Team Scan @ Madison Square Garden 2011

Team Final’s top Philly guard, Lamar Kimble won MVP of the FunSport Junior Pro’s championship game, which tipped off 8:30pm Sunday January 2, at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, NY.

In opening, Rickey Rivers, Director of FSJP presented Isaiah Briscoe (Team Scan) and Malacha Richardson (Team Final) co-MVP awards for the tournament.

October 16, 2010 – kicked off preseason at Brooklyn’s Navy Yard Boys & Girls Club, where Rudy King implemented a masterful 20 minute conditioning workout for every team, before each of their three guaranteed games.

This enabled Rivers to better select 24 of the most qualified squads for the “Race to Madison Square Garden”.

November 06, 2010 – regular season began at Ronald Edmonds Learning Center also located in Brooklyn.

In Team Scan’s title lost, 6’3″ big man Austrian Robinson from New York received MVP honors for his impressive double double.

“Robinson gets MVP,” King said confidently early in the 4th quarter.

Suddenly it became apparent that Robinson was the X-factor, as he continuously powered up to finish strong at the rim.

Dominating the paint, he contested shots, rebounded and made tough put backs.

At the end, Rivers finally introduced sponsor Mike Parker of Converse to a stunned audience of 300-500 thrilled supporters.

The atmosphere felt homey with so many friends, family members and fans of youth basketball.
