The first year of the Mississippi Basketball Association youth league was considered a success and plans have already begun for the future.
M.B.A. director Fred Tate said "this first year was great and the kids had fun."
The champions were crowned recently and the 7-8 boys title went to the Spurs, while the Bulls claimed the 9-10 boys crown, the Lakers took home the hardware in 11-12 boys and 7-10 girls, while the Thunder won the 13-14 boys and 13-14 girls championships
There will be changes in the league next year as the age bracket will expand to ages 5-17.
Some new teams (Clippers, Cavaliers, Pacers, Knicks and Wizards) will be added.
"I want to thank all sponsors and the ones that donated money to the program to make it possible," Tate said. "I think it was great to get youth from Louisville, Ackerman, Eupora, Columbus and West Point. I will continue to serve my city the M.B.A. every summer."
