Nations Elite Prospects made its way to Ohio to check out the Buckeye Prep Invitational Tourney.This years Buckeye Prep Tourney in Columbus, Oh. was a huge success. I watched a lot of games and was really impressed with the talent level. Teams from all around came to lay claim to the Buckeye Prep championship trophy. There were several good teams and stand out players in the 14u thru 17u divisions. Below are the tournament winners and MVP players.
Dorians Pride-8th grade Champions
Algevon Eichelberger Jr.-8th grade MVP
The 8th grade Dorian Prides team had an uphill battle getting to the championship game. They dropped two games the first day of play. One of those loses was to TNBA. The team they ended up defeating in the championship game. Dorians Pride was lead by the play of Algevon Eichelberger jr. He lead his team with 27pts. and 12 rebounds per game. He was the MVP of the 8th grade division.
All Ohio Purple played great the entire tournament. They played good defense which led to a lot of easy buckets in transition. They really played great together as a team. In the championship game they played against All Ohio Elite. They were lead in the championship game by James Bolden their 5'10" pg. Bolden can flat out play! Bolden has great handles and a very high basketball IQ. He received the nod for MVP for his strong performance and smart play.
