Bulldogs Invade Fayetteville, NC

The Annandale Bulldogs traveled to Fayetteville, North Carolina April 20th and 21st to play in the All American Shootout. In front of college coaches, the team was undefeated, posting a 3-0 record in their pool and ended up losing in the semi-finals of the tournament. Overall, they were 4-1 for the tournament.

They opened the tournament against the SEBL A Team. SEBL got off to a quick 4-0 lead before a basket by Nate Barrigan and two baskets by Mark Elliott pushed the Bulldogs to the lead. Both teams exchanged leads for the remainder of the first half as Colin Jeffrey and Bryce Washington also added to the scoring. SEBL lead at the half by 28-26. In the second half, the Bulldogs built an eight point lead only to see SEBL tie the game with 13 seconds left to send the game into overtime.  Bryce Washington took over in the overtime period scoring 7 of his 15 points to lead the Bulldogs to a 67-66 victory. Nate Barrigan led the Bulldogs in scoring for the game with 20 points, followed by Colin Jeffrey’s 16, Bryce Washington’s 15, and Mark Elliott’s 12.

The second game matched the Bulldogs against the Wayne County Blazers. This game would turn out to be a high scoring game. Wayne County got out to a small lead at the start only to see the Bulldogs get hot from the three point area. Bryce Washington and Colin Jeffrey both hit three 3 pointers in the first half to give the Bull Dogs a 44-37 lead at halftime. The hot shooting continued through the second half as the Bulldogs pulled away for a 99-80 final score. Colin Jeffrey lead the scoring with 29 points (6 of 7 from 3 point range), followed by Bryce Washington with 17, Marshall Cogburn and Mark Elliott with 14, and Nate Barrigan with 10.

The lead went back and forth in the first half with Bulldogs leading by eight at one point. Wayne County would come back, as they would do for most of the game, and the Bulldogs lead by a 36-33 score at halftime. The second half saw the Bulldogs continue to build a lead only to see the Blazers fight back. Marshall Cogburn kept the Bulldogs in the lead by dominating the inside. Marshall would score 12 of the team’s final 13 points as the game was tied with eight seconds left. The Blazers took the ball out at the end of the court and shot the ball from just inside the half court line.

They won all three games and proved they are still the best team in YBOA. They first defeated the new Cardinal team that replaced them by a score 69-22.

Next on their list was their old nemesis Arlington Pride. The Bulldawgs had control of this game until the referees decided they wanted a close game by calling two technical in the last three minutes of the game. Robert knocked in the game winning shot with 13 seconds left on the clock, to move the Bulldawgs into the Championship game against Basic# 1

The stage was set for the championship game Basic #1 vs Bulldawgs. Basic #1, who was known as Virginia Elite last year, had improved by picking up key players this season. They were beating good teams by 15 points and not breaking a sweat. The championship game seemed to be a game of runs, until Basic had 31 -16 point margin.

The Bulldawgs played in their first AAU tournament this past weekend. Nate was high man this weekend with 34 points off the bench followed closely by Isaiah with 32. The team hit over 45% from three point land for the Tournament. Foul shooting and boxing out were a problem in the first game against Team Takeover. The second game boxing out was still an issue and the team went 11-32 inside on 2 point shots. The third game we saw a strong finish, the Bulldawgs truly demonstrated how being aggressive will help in the win column.


The Warriors were up against the 6-0 "Cardinal Tru-Baller" with a 17U player. It made no difference as the Warriors attack, stole, and shot their way to a perfect 7-0 regular season record. Nate had 18 with 4 three point shots.

The beat goes on! The Warriors improved to 6-0 for the Fall League as they destroyed MD Dream 70-38. The team is improving we played this team earlier this year and the game was close. This time we did not wait until the second half to give the MD Dream a nightmare. More scouts for the Warriors as BI shows joins the scouts the like what the see out of the Warriors.

The Warriors struggled big time while at the Nationals. The good news is that Avyn won the free throw contest for the 13U.

The first two games they could not do anything right. The Third game against the Westbank Jaguars we came out with fire, but could not maintain it. Our first bracket came was against Florida Fire. The offensive played well, but the had to many defensive mental lapse and that caused them the game. The Georgia Jaguars started their midget crew for the first quarter, but the Warriors only had a one point margin after the first quarter. We blew many offensive chances, which caused us the game.

The Warriors are ready to start the Winter League. They will be playing against elite AAU teams. This will be a good warm-up for the tough spring season that 2009 will bring.

The red hot Cardinal Warriors have 13 wins out of their last 14 games played. They are playing up in most of these games against good opponents. They are now 4-0 in the Fall League after, knocking off Loudon County for the second straight time. Chief drop in 30 points and Bryce pulled down eight rebounds.

When the Warriors destroyed Loudon County with a game that was made for TV. They shot 65% from the field and hit 14 out 17 3 point shots.

First Game of the Fall League, the Warriors started with a bang. After trailing by 10 points at half time the Warriors dug themselves out of a big hole. They held the 14U Cardinal team to 6 points in the second half.
Chief only played in the second half,but was able to drop a quick 10 points Bryce also put in 10 points and 10 boards.

Labor Day Championship Game, the Warriors only had 5 players, but played well against the Team Future 13u who had nine players.

After switching to their Dagger Defense they open the game up. Ahmed was the leader of the charge with three steals and eight in the second half. Nate was also a huge contributor shooting 6-6 from the field with 5 steals. The Warriors have played in 7 leagues and won 6, 2 Cardinal Leagues and 4 Fairfax Stars leagues. This is just an amazing record. They also won their 40th game of the year.

The Warriors won thier fourth Fairfax Championship Title by Beating BRYC again. This time the warriors were ahead the entire game. BRYC made a run in the second half, but Nate ended it as fast as it started. Chief was 9-13 from the field, Ahmed also was 3-5, Isaiah 4-7, Kevin 2-2. The big guys played very well against the monsters of BRYC.

Two years of domination by BRYC ended this week. BRYC falling was that loud noise you heard Thursday night. The Warriors came out on a mission, but missed 20 shots in the first half. The second half was totally different. The warriors on a steady attack dismantle the BRYC triple tower machine. Chief Drop 35 points and big Kevin intimidate the big guys of BRYC.

The team did a great job at the USBA Nationals. USBA has a computer ranking system, very similar to college ranking. Out of 79 ranked teams our first game was against the #1 ranked team in USBA Carolina Dream. We came out with fire and was in command early but we were not able to maintain during the last few minutes of the game and it ended in a seven point loss.

The second game was against the 6th ranked computer ranked team. We destroyed them by 29 points. The third pool game was against last year 12U Champs. That is not a typo Forrest Hill Heat won the 12U last year playing up. We had a lot of problems with their ability to shoot the 3 ball, and their Phoenix Suns style of play.

Bracket play we were placed 14 seed by the computer program and defeated the Myrtle Beach Sharks by 14 points. The second game of Bracket play we faced the five seed, against the United Celtics. This was a huge team, but our game plan was on the money. We stopped the big man in the first half, but could not stop the second tower in the second half.

This was the best performance Nationally (YBOA/USBA/USSSA) in 3 years by a Virginia team in our age group. If you included AAU, only the Fairfax Stars Gold/U-Turn have accomplished more nationally than Cardinal Warriors out of 25 plus Virginia Teams.
