12:18pm – DC Blue Devils advanced to the 16U finals with a 62-57 win over WE R1. The Blue Devils didn’t take a lead into late in the second half but once Jeff Dowtin took control at point guard, there was no turning back. The duo of Dowtin and backcourt mate Markelle Fultz were ultimately too much for WE R1 to handle. They’ll play New Heights in the finals. —@Josh_Stirn

Spectrum lost its intensity in the second half and could not keep up with High Rise Elite eventually falling 52-46.
