The East Bay Soldiers returned from the Jr. NBA Back to School 3×3 basketball tournament in Walnut Creek last weekend in winning fashion, with their 12-under boys team going undefeated.

The fearsome foursome propelling the U-12 team to the championship included Aquil Perkins, Zion Hunter, Tyree Hayes and Broyce Batchan, Jr. Their title ceremony was captured on video, as seen below.

The Soldiers’ 13/14 team also performed incredibly well, making it all the way to the championship but coming up short of the title.

“Our teams beat teams from all across the Bay Area such as Oakland PAL, San Ramon, Dublin, Santa Rosa and many other teams,” an East Bay Soldiers team official said.
