Team NYC Takes 2021 NY Future Crown
Huntington, NY Coach Donald Francois of Archbishop Molloy High brought his Team NYC squad team to the NY’s Future tournament championship on Easter Sunday. In the finals of the seven team event, Team NYC rallied hard to grab the win over Beacon Elite, 65-59. Beacon Elite was a team that featured St Franics Prep players.
The NY Future is the first of a series of high level competitions for Team NYC, which will include some international travel this spring and summer.
Some of yesterday’s key TNY contributors were:
Jayden James (2023) 6’5 wing, Archbishop Molloy High School was named the tournament Co-MVP. James finished with a team high of 31 points. His strong finishes to the basket and incredible moves were samples of his undeniable talent.
Malachi McMillan (2023) 6’0 guard, Archbishop Molloy High was the other Co-MVP. His suffocating defense stopped the opposing teams best offensive players. He plays both sides of the court with ease and is undoubtedly a crowd favorite.
Timothy Charles (2023) 6’10 forward, Olympus Prep (NJ) crashed the boards impressively in yesterday’s win. Charles finished with five blocks, eight rebounds and ten points.
Elijah Small (2024) 6’6 wing, Archbishop Molloy High MVP was named tournament’s 3rd Co-MVP. He is credited for his tenacious defense, finishing with six blocks and sixteen points. As a freshman, Elijah has already received two Division 1 college offers. His future is bright.
