Entering the tourament unranked, the Riverside Hawks ignored rankings and walked away with the 10u AAU National Championship today in Clarksville, TN.
Looking at our Elite 8 predictions, we predicted that the Hawks for the #8 ranked Oakland Soldiers would be the toughest to predict. We ultimately took the Soldiers but was incorrect as the Hawks won that game and knocked off Team United in the final four to advance to todays gold medal game.
Today, the Hawks won a battle with the #3 nationally ranked New World. Riverside won 42-36 to capture the national title.
