Championship Game 2018: LaMelo, LiAngelo Drop 92 Points in LA's Win - Aug 13, 2018

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

LiAngelo Ball (6'5''-G-98, college: UCLA, agency: Slash Sports) isn't on an NBA roster and Lamelo Ball (6'5''-G-01, agency: Slash Sports) is too young to play in the Association, but they can add something to their resumes after Sunday: a championship in the league their father created. The Ball brothers led Los Angeles to the first-ever Junior Basketball Association championship with a 132-121 victory over Seattle in the inaugural title game at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. LaVar Ball created the JBA as something of an alternative to the NCAA, and his sons put their final stamp on the first season by pouring in the points in Sunday's championship contest. LiAngelo was dominant throughout, as he tallied 58 points, 11 rebounds and six assists and drilled the biggest shot of the contest. After Seattle trimmed a double-digit deficit to three with less than two minutes remaining, LiAngelo connected on one of his seven triples to give Los Angeles some much-needed breathing room. LaMelo added 34 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, although he had 11 turnovers and shot only 2-of-7 from deep. The contest lived up to the billing as a rematch of the thrilling matchup on June 24 when Los Angeles prevailed 150-145. Seattle was tied after a quarter and remained within striking distance even after falling behind in the middle portion of the game, which allowed it to consistently chip away down the stretch before LiAngelo's clutch three and free throws expanded the final deficit. Jerrell Springer (6'4''-G) led the way for Seattle with 32 points, while Treyvon Abdullah-Booker stuffed the stat sheet with 23 points and 18 rebounds. It still wasn't enough to overcome LiAngelo, who wasn't shy about launching shots from the start. He took 29 of his 53 shot attempts in the first half alone and was able to stretch the defense with his perimeter game and score inside when the matchups called for it. He made up for his brother's inefficiency, as LaMelo struggled with Seattle's pressure defense and continued turning the ball over while failing to find his touch from deep. To his credit, though, he found other ways to impact the game by battling for boards and dishing out assists when his teammates were open. LaMelo figures to have an NBA future if he fulfills his potential. The 16-year-old was a highly regarded prospect before he played in various leagues with his brother, and he competed against much older players at times. After LiAngelo went undrafted in 2018, LaVar insisted the JBA is how he will eventually earn his spot on the Los Angeles Lakers to join his older brother, Lonzo. LiAngelo may have a ways to go before he makes it to the NBA, but he was a dominant force Sunday and came away as a JBA champion.

Rieger performance not enough as Team JBA USA winning streak ends in Macedonia - 6 months ago
Team JBA USA fell from behind quickly to start the game. Although they made a comeback, the 24 point deficit was too much to overcome. The 12 game winning streak came to an end with a 129-122 loss to Rabotnicki KK on Wednesday evening at the Telecom Arena in Skopje, Macedonia. JBA USA (13-3) fell behind from the start and couldn't get a lead the entire game after trailing 41-17 at the end of the first quarter thanks to 19 three pointers as a team for Rabotnicki. JBA USA chipped away and l...   [read more]

LaMelo Ball is Returning To High School, Plans To Enroll at SPIRE Institute in Ohio - 6 months ago
The Ball family grew into a household name by doing and saying the unexpected. Unconventional move after unconventional move throughout 2017 kept basketball fans on their toes while drawing criticism from others. First it was Lonzo Ball opting to go the independent route by helping launch his family's brand instead of signing a traditional sneaker contract with Nike, adidas or Under Armour. Then it was Lamelo Ball (6'5''-G-01, agency: Slash Sports) withdrawing from Chino Hills HS to be h...   [read more]
