Flower Mound Marcus 67 Texas D1 Ambassadors-San Antonio 62
The Marcus squad has now won back to back GASO events. They’ve got a tough squad who have structure and familiarity with each other. Couple that with a will to win and 3, and quite possibly 4 D1 players (Marcus Smart, Phil Forte, Nick Banyard, A.J. Luckey) and you can see that their championships are no fluke. Texas D1 could not hold their 6 point half time lead. Uche Ofoegbu had 21 points, while Ramirez added 14. Phil Forte had 23 to lead the way for Marcus. Oh yeah, Marcus Smart is a beast, no doubt about it!
