Sussex YMCA's cadet all-stars take Salvation Army crown By Tom Coveleski The clock kept ticking. Delmar was suddenly being muscle, driving lay-ups, jumpers and rebounds. By a YMCA team on a mission. Reality finally sank in, with Y guard Brandon Leggins on the foul line, hitting 4 of the last 6 fouls shots, leading the YMCA 8&9 cadet All-Stars to a 3_7-32 victory over Delmar and its first crown - the championship at the Salvation Army Youth Basketball Tournament in Salisbury, MD the week of March 17-24. "This feels so good," YMCA oach Richard Tabler said. "We gave it all we had and never quit." The road to the championship began with a 31-28 overtime vic- tory over Ocean City. where guard Kevin Brittingham iced the game with 4 of his game- high 13 points. In the semifinal game, the Y ployed a smothering press and center Joe Tablet's game-high 16 points to rip open a competitive game and beat South Salisbury The Y made up for their woeful shooting troubles with a suffocat- ing defense. Ocean City was often triple-teamed by the Y's collaps- ing pressure, forcing 17 turnovers. Forward Jeff Poet hit a clutch jumper to lead the Y to overtime Members of the 1997 Cadet 8&9 All-Star YMCA champions include (back row l-r) Joe Tabler and Coach Richard Tablet, and front row (1.r) Tyler Townsend, Andrew Windsor, Bran- don Leggins, Steve Peet, Raymond Jackson and Lisa Williams.
