Burke, VA (Dec. 30, 2015) – The John Champe boys basketball team won the Glory Days Grill Tournament of Champions after a hard fought battle against the Lake Braddock Bruins on Wednesday, Dec. 29th at Lake Braddock High School.
John Champe’s Kuony Deng’s 32-points and Zack Burdick’s 21 helped secure a 75-65 victory. Despite the 10-point margin, with the score knotted up at 57-57 and 3:41 left in the game, it took a Burdick 3-point shot to ignite a stout team defensive effort, a scoring run and key free throws by Deng, Burdick, Scotty Collier, Ryan Conner and Zion Brown to earn the win.
Congratulations to Kuony Deng and Zack Burdick for being named to the All-Tournament team, and to Deng being named Tournament MVP.
