The Urban Assembly Unison School basketball team is off to a slam dunk start to their season, just finishing another successful week. Riding a three game winning streak, the Trailblazers visited the spectacular gym of Ronald Edmonds Learning Center (MS113) to uphold their undefeated record against District 13 schools. Through strong leadership from 8th graders Tyrese Cazeau and DeAndre Jordan, along with tremendous play from Ashawn Baird, Dashawn Blake and DJ Mack, the Trailblazers from Unison prevailed by double digits.
The team has been doing so well, that three members of the team were invited on Saturday the 31st to participate in the New York City Middle School Basketball League’s annual Brooklyn Vs. Queens all star game. Representing Unison was Justine Vizcaino in the girls varsity A game and Ashawn Baird and DJ Mack in the boys varsity A game. The three players led there respective teams to victory to help Brooklyn defeat Queens in the annual event. Go Trailblazers!
