ATL Midnight Express 9/10 grade Team Appears in two Finals!!

May 8, 2012
By Jerry Clement of YBOA

The ATL Midnight Express Team 9/10 grade team was invited to appear in  two tournaments across town at the Kennesaw Fury Tournament in Dallas, Ga and the Georgia Champions Tournament in Decatur, GA.  Our journey started on Friday evening in Dallas, Ga and ended in Decatur, GA on Sunday making it to the finals and placing second in both tournaments.  With the leadership of Freshman Sensation Darius Alexander (center) from Stockbridge High School, The ATL Midnight Express 9/10 grade team was able to topple opponents with his thunderous dunks, finesse moves around the basket and to top it all off with an array of sharp three point shooting to demoralize the opponents while averaging 31 points per game.  Moreover, Mr. Alexander shocked the Dallas, Ga community by running away with the first place trophy at the Kennesaw Fury slam dunk contest and sealing the deal with an alley-oop over the chair against the backboard two handed nasty slam dunk to electrify all spectators.  Another freshman standout from Stockbridge High School (near left), Ramond Wynn, used his deceptive dribbling and penetration moves to frustrate opponents by amassing 19 points and a team high 10 assists per game while spreading the defense to allow his teammates to take advantage of open lanes and jump shot opportunities. Also, mucho kudos to Jamario Dugan "The Rebound Monster" averaging 16 rebounds per game, "The Spinster" Demonte Franklin whose defense created open fast breaks, Cris Cotton for his hustle and determination and to Marco Bennett for his composure during high pressure situations with key steals down the stretch.  Go ATL Midnight Express!!
