Mass Commanders Ice Basketball (MCIB) guard/forward/fullback Alex Momo was named MVP of the 2021 Spring Session T.B.C. Championships. The 6'1" 220 pound Southern Maine CC commit was absolutely (and at times absurdly) unstoppable in helping the MCIB 2021 squad capture co-champions honors in the T.B.C. Boys Varsity NBA Division. Momo got to the rim at absolute will, scoring a on one jaw-dropping drive after the next, at times blowing past defenders, at other times flying over them, and sometimes even bulldozing straight through them. In addition to scoring around the rim at will, Momo controlled the glass, played stellar defense, found the open man and in general made everyone around him better, leading MCIB 2021 to victories of 52, 35 and 46 points, respectively.
Momo was joined on the all-tournament team by MCIB 2022 guard Derrick Thomas Jr., MCIB 2022 forward Kyle Bovell, Mass Select forward Todd Brogna and Lions guard Brandon Hulecki.
Thomas, a heady, steady point guard ran the show for MCIB 2022, knocking down big shots, getting to the rim, and leading the team by pulling them together and calming them down whenever the game got tight.
Bovell emerged as a new star with perhaps the highest ceiling on the tournament co-champions. The uber-athletic forward played elbows above the rim, altered numerous shots, grabbed key rebounds and scored some of the biggest buckets of the weekend.
Brogna continued his tenacious play, nearly single handedly carrying Mass Select into the chip. The 6'6" Northborough native has entrenched himself as the most polished post man in the league, and championship weekend was no different, as he scored with both hands often and at ease around the paint en spite of constant double teams. He also crashed the glass, knocked down perimeter shots and displayed a deft passing touch.
Hulecki's scoring explosion was the stuff of video games, as he led the entire conference in scoring, lapping the field several times while putting up 37 points per game over the entire weekend. The dynamic left handed guard was fearless going to the rim and scored from all three levels in spite of often having two, three and even four collapsing defenders with hands in his face.
