VYPE Hoops 2018 Playmakers Championship lived up to its name this year. Some very talented teams from around Houston and one program from the Dallas area had the attention of the fans.
The organization Tiger Select got the attention of many spectators and coaches with the group of talented athletes they brought down from the Dallas area. Tiger Select had a 10u, 12u and 13u team in the tournament. There three teams came to town to win and that they did, all three teams left tournament champions.
In the 11u group, Nemesis Crushers brought back their talented group to claim their second tournament championship this season. The team chemistry and discipline of this very young team is impressive and a big part of their winning streak at VYPE.
BIG Basketball Academy came up short in the 13u Red Division with a last second buzzer beater hit by Tiger Select. In the 13u Blue Division BIG Basketball Academy was able to defeat Katy Hustle in the final to bring home a championship for the organization.

The 16u and 17u divisions came a day later but did not disappoint. The Shooting Stars had a battle against No Limit Sports but came out on top in the round robin division. In the 17u division the high-flying Adidas Silver Gauntlet – UpNext Basketball group got to show off some of their skills above the rim as they won the championship undefeated for the day.
