Ernesto Cappuccio set picks and played incredible defense throughout the tournament.  Daniel Diana, Koda and his cousin, Isaiah Ahlstrom ran the court and forced teams to double and triple team at times.  All five of the Bay Cruisers played with a ton of heart to make the games close.

It was a fantastic effort and Coach Richie Bennett got the kids to deliver everything they had to advance as far as they did.

After the tournament the kids had the opportunity to tour the United States Olympic Training Center and see some of the venues where the top US athletes are training in preparation for London.
