The WCBA 2nd grade team went 4-0 for the weekend and prevailed with a combination of outstanding pressure defense (28 minutes of heck) and great ball movement. The team won the championship game on a last second put-back. The most impressive part of the championship victory was that the team did not use a late game timeout; this team has played against older, stronger teams all season and the boys have gained enough experience to understand the situation and figure it out on their own. The 2nd graders trailed late in the game, but forced a turnover and found a way to win. Every single player made key contributions during the championship run! This team has come to be defined by their outstanding effort and their willingness to work and compete on every possession. Congratulations!

WCBA Blue 2026 overcame a sluggish start in the first half on Friday night of the tournament to defeat Garner Road Burnette. Saturday proved to be a great matchup against a really good Team F.L.Y out of Salisbury who has been dominant in the Southeast Circuit this season. After a tight, back and forth game, WCBA pulled ahead by a few down the stretch and closed out the game going 6-6 from the line in the final minute. Going 2-0 in pool play WCBA advanced to the Gold Bracket. The wins in pool play forced Team F.L.Y and Garner Road into the Silver and Bronze Brackets which they went on to win with ease.
Sunday's bracket play included games against Elite One Ballers in the semi finals and Duplin County Ball Stars in the championship game where WCBA played great defense and exploded offensively with great passing and poise with the ball.
WCBA Blue 2026 plays hard from the tip to the buzzer every game and they all play for each other.
