COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO- The NWBA is proud to announce February’s Toyota NWBA Team of the Month Program nominees.
The nominees are as follows:
1. Kansas City Kings - Varsity: The athletes have been working hard since September, not letting the pandemic slow them down. They have met challenges by practicing in a warehouse when the normal venue was unavailable, providing their coach with ‘film’ of independent practice, and have shown improvement over the last three years. Most of the athletes went from never having played basketball to starting on a varsity team as middle schoolers. They now have a winning record and continue to improve every week. They work hard and a few have voiced college ambitions.
2. Auburn University Tigers - Collegiate: Great sportsmanship.
3. Nebraska Red Dawgs - Varsity: The team has been doing great with encouraging everyone during practice to push to their best. They are learning new ways to work together as everyone now has different strengths and roles on the team since our seniors from last year graduated. Everyone’s been doing a great job of learning how to work together in new roles and push to be the best they can be and continue to work to be better. Despite COVID, they have been doing their best to stay safe and stay in the game by continuing to wear masks during practice and getting temperate checks and screened before going into the gym.
4. Ft. Lauderdale Sharks - DII: Great team spirit. All are welcomed with open arms.
5. Kansas City Kings - Prep: The Kansas City Kings have been committed to practicing and playing safely and have been able to keep their season going all year. The organization has hosted a tournament and traveled to the Oklahoma City tournament with the team posting impressive records at both, all while maintaining proper safety protocols. They practice each week, and remain dedicated to playing and furthering the sport at every chance they get.
