Texas D-1 Ambassadors 74 Team Nashville (TN) 62

2009 W William Nelson of Port Allen, LA was a force inside, outside and on the boards in leading the Texas D-1 Ambassadors this weekend in Birmingham, AL.
In what was our biggest challenge thus far, the Texas D-1 Ambassadors erased a 12 point deficit and pulled away from Team Nashville in a 74-62 win in the quarter finals of the Crush Elite Tournament in Birmingham, AL. The Nashville squad had a couple of SEC level recruits and gave us fits down low until 2011 P 6'8" Brandon Alexander brought his physical play to the game and pulled us back into the game.

2009 W William Nelson, a pro football prospect as well as a heck of a roundballer dropped 19 points, many of them tough buckets down the stretch. Great guard play and decision making were the key. 2010 G Joe Charles did a great job defending in his first action back since suffering a broken neck in a car wreck last October.
