The Championship game was a wild and woolly affair. The D-1 Ambassadors came out with great energy and at times led by as many as 18, holding a 49-36 lead. The Galveston Hornets began to shoot three pointers and they were deadly. Several times they pulled 30 footers and drained them. They were tough. Attributes of this D-1 Ambassadors team (and a hall mark of the organization) is it’s chemistry, depth, & balance.
Texas D-1 Ambassadors-Team Hardge notched their 18th win in a row, besting the Galveston Hornets 99-95 in OT to capture the Great American Shootout in College Station this past weekend.
