I could'nt have scripted it better myself.

Tarik Black (Ridgeway) broke a 74 all tie with :30 seconds on the clock then converted a deep pass for another bucket and foul to lift the Rockets past the Hornets 79-74 and capture the NBPA Top 100 Camp Championship.

All four Tennessee players were in the title game much to the pleasure of yours truly.

Casey Prather (Jackson Northside) finished the with game high scoring honors at 19 and ended the camp leading the Tennessee kids withan average of 12.0.

Joe Jackson (White Station) had a wonderful camp, leading the all-star game in scoring with 14, and dropping 13 in the title contest loss.

Mardracus Wade (Mitchell) made significant moves for his stock finishing the camp at 8.6 points per game and showing everyone he belongs in this top 100 national list.

Black who was nothing short of superb finished averaging 7.4 points and was one of the camp leaders in boards and blocks.

Congrats to all of those guys and look forward to seeing you in July.
