California Bearcats 7th Grade wins 8th Grade Silver division in Arizona Southwest Showcase Tournament

The California Bearcats 7th Grade Red team put together a phenomenal weekend of basketball to win the 8th Grade Silver division at the Southwest Showcase Tournament in Phoenix, Ariz.

The team went 4-0 over the two-day tournament winning the championship game (51-49) versus a team that had just defeated the third ranked 7th grade team on the West Coast.

Down one with under 15 seconds to play, CIF Coach of the Year Chad Bickley, called a great play to put the Bearcats up one which turned out to be the winning basket. The team basketball that this group plays is extraordinary for this age.
