Music City Heat Stars Take Title at Las Vegas Fab 48

The 2014 Las Vegas Fab 48 welcomed teams from all over the Southwest, as well as; teams from all over the country.

Murphy had himself a nice event finishing in double digits averaging around 10 points per contest for the event.

On the interior the Stars looked to Isaiah Blacksmith (East Literature) who was a monster on the glass snatching close to 10 boards per contest. Maurice Wright (Northwest) and Malcolm Walker (Independence) were major contributors inside. Wright was blocking shots while Walker was lauded for his rebounding and defensive effort on the interior.
