Texas D-1 Ambassadors-Team Battley/Morse Heads To Vegas

Texas D-1 Ambassadors 2013-Team Battley with a roster comprised of players entirely from Killeen, TX won the Nike NIT this past weekend.  They went 5-1 defeating the Cen Tex Shooters in the championship game.
Key performers were Reynard Thomas (10ppg, 7 apg), Nashoon Hughes (14ppg), Andre Hughes (13ppg), Tyler Brown (10ppg) & Julian Battley (10ppg).

Below:  All orange, all the time as this weekend there was a Family Feud of the Texas D-1 Ambassadors. Team Battley in orange, lost to Team Morse in white. However, Team Battley beat Cen tex Shooters for the ultimate prize: The Championship.   2013 Julian Battley turns the corner (no easy task while sporting that top heavy Mohawk) past an unidentified defender as he makes his way towards the paint and a win for his squad.
Safe travels and good luck to Team Battley as they leave this morning for the 1350 mile drive in a van from Killeen, TX to Las Vegas, NV to compete in the Las Vegas Swoosh Challenge.  Team Morse will also compete in the same Las Vegas tournament.  We wish all the boys well.
