Junior B (Ages 8-9)
Hail to the Victors! The Wolverines won MDYC’s Junior 8-9 Basketball League Playoffs! A double overtime thriller in the championship was the most dramatic way to end an amazing season where all four teams played great throughout.
Finishing the regular season with a 6-2 record, the Wolverines were the top seed going into the playoffs. This did not make their path easier because all four teams in the Junior League were hard to beat. In the semifinals, the Wolverines beat the Broncos 22-6, setting up a championship match on March 6 against the Grizzles. The Grizzlies and Wolverines split the regular season series 1-1, so this matchup was set to be an instant classic. And it was! An 18-16 double overtime win for the Wolverines!
