Teamwork tops big names at Antonio Little Memorial Tournament
There were several professional players and tons of college players at Saturday's third annual Antonio Little Memorial Tournament, but it was the two teams that were most familiar with each other that advanced to the title game.
In the finals, Team Fiorucci, which featured Isaiah, Jeremiah and Joel Box, topped Team Curran, which was comprised entirely of former Hononegah players, 60-49.
Isaiah Box, who just wrapped up his college career at NAIA power Dalton State, scored 21 points and had six assists. Jeremiah Box, who played semi-pro basketball after playing for NCAA Division II school Emporia State in college, added 14.
Joel, the oldest who played professionally overseas for more than 10 years, rested most of the second half, scoring four points.
David Brown, who starred at the University of Western Michigan, led Curran with 19 points and Brandon Schwebke had 15.
The tournament is in the memory of former South Beloit basketball player Antonio Little, who died in 2015. The tournament was played at the UW-Sports Factory and features an adult/high school, middle school, elementary school and wheelchair division.
