PAST VEGAS CLASSIC CHAMPIONS

2007 - ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF)
2008 - ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF)
2009 - VEGAS CLASSIC (VC) COUGARS
2010 - VEGAS CLASSIC (VC) COUGARS
2011 - ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF)

We all witnessed ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF)'s successful and well-balanced team in beating LA BALLERS, 46-30 in first round, upsetting DEAF SPORTS ACADEMY (DSA), 44-38 in semi-final and beating NEW MEXICO COUGARS, 66-63 in overtime with AZDF's Wally Reyes (No. #22)'s four (4) 3-pointer shots in second half to tie with NEW MEXICO COUGARS into overtime. It capped ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF)'s third VEGAS CLASSIC Championship in its history.

NEW MEXICO COUGARS' Robert Haney (No. #3) with 26 points and Sekoe White (No. #20) with 25 points carried NEW MEXICO COUGARS admirably until tied in second half. They made a total of three (3) 3-pointers in vain attempts.

We all think that three (3) teams, ARIZONA DESERT FIRE (AZDF), DEAF SPORTS ACADEMY (DSA) and NEW MEXICO COUGARS from FAAD deserve automatic berth in USADB Division I Tournament as they all are excellent top teams from FAAD as well as our other three (3) teams from FAAD vying for NDBO Tournament..

VEGAS CLASSIC Invitational Tournament was a well-run tournament with deaf-run basketball officials headed by Jimmy Newsome and Michael "Doc" Torres with David Hamilton, Ollie Palmer and Travis Jokumsen as the basketball officials. Scorekeeping and timekeeping were professionally handled by James Leek with Michael Gallagher, Dolores Pitzler, Mark Quinones, and others. VEGAS CLASSIC's runner was competently handled by Megan Nairne of Michigan

VEGAS CLASSIC was very hospitable to NEW MEXICO COUGARS and DEAF SPORTS ACADEMY (DSA) by providing them with some complimentary lodgings in Downtown Las Vegas at the Fitzeralds near the Chuck Minker Sport Center.

VEGAS CLASSIC's mission is to provide and support the Youth Basketball Camp for our Young Boys and Girls. The gym rental was wholly sponsored by Paradise Sertoma of Las Vegas. Hand Waving to the hard-working crew of Bonita and James Leek with their Vegas Classic staff for its tourney success.
