Alleluia Wins 6th Straight!

Alleluia's season opening loss, a heart breaker to the homeschool Eagles when Alleluia gave up a double-digit second half lead, must seem like ages ago to Angels players and coaches.  The guys have responded with six consecutive wins, including a tournament championship in North Georgia against the likes of GISA power Furtah Prep and formidable Faith Baptist, and a convincing victory Tuesday over cross town rival Curtis Baptist.  The Angels are starting to turn heads with their unique combination of unselfish, heady play mixed with a crew of long range bombers, an athletic front line player, and a gritty leader who makes things go.  Mix all that with coach Dennis McBride, a consummate gym rat who during games has almost as much fun as his players, and you get an entertaining evening whenever the Angels take the court.  I put these clips together from Tuesday's game to try to show what I like so much about these guys:

And speaking of turning heads, I hope Matt Miller (sophomore USMMA hooper and former player whom I am also tracking) doesn't mind my sharing a text exchange from earlier this morning regarding the Alleluia boys.  He was evidently following my live tweeting of Tuesday's game.  And I neglected to send the most important tweet of the night:  the one with the game's final score.  Matt wanted to know how one of our new favorite squad's game ended.  Here is the exchange:

I am in blue. Matt is in white.
And I meant "layups," not "labs," Siri!

Matt and his teammates will soon discover their own secrets to having fun AND winning.  Just like Alleluia is currently learning to do.  And they are learning in good style!
