Gatlinburg, TN – When star player Daniel Ntambwe went down with an ankle injury in round 2, WV Mpact coach Doug Williamson said he was going to go back to the drawing board and come up with a new gameplan and sure did he ever. Led by sharp shooting Aiden Slack, floor general in WV’s top PG in 2023 Dominic Schmidt and inside play of the next Tsheibwe coming up the ranks in Debaba, WV Mpact defeated B.Maze Elite 2024 in a thrilling 14U title game 52-49.

Jahseem Felton ranks in the top 10 nationally in the 2024 class, starred for B.Maze Elite 2024 along with Blue Cain and Dante Oliver. 6’9 7th grader Peyton Marshall of Atlanta Locked In was the breakout performer in the division.
