Favors, Graham lead Atlanta Celtics to surprise win

LAS VEGAS -- A few days ago at Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV, Pump-n-Run Elite defeated Atlanta Celtics Black in pool play behind Jrue Holiday's (North Hollywood, Calif./Campbell Hall) scintillating performance. The championship of the Adidas Super 64 would have the same teams squaring off, but the outcome was entirely different as the Atlanta Celtics Black took home the championship, 75-64.

The Celtics started fast out of the gate and dominated the interior throughout the contest with their massive frontline as 6-9 junior Derrick Favors (Atlanta/South Atlanta) finished with 17 points while 6-6 senior Delwan Graham (Dunwoody, Ga.), the unsung hero for the Celtics throughout the tournament, chipped in 20 points.
