Teams representing eight military installations from around the National Capital Region competed in the 25th annual Washington Area Military Athletic Conference Capital Classic men’s and women’s basketball tournament, Feb.14-16. Games took place at Joint Base Andrews; Dover AFB; Forts Lee and Myer; joint bases Langley-Eustis and Anacostia-Bolling; NSA Bethesda; and, at Belvoir, for several rounds.
The Belvoir Eagles opened the tournament with an evening matchup against the Fort Lee Travellers, Feb. 14 at Graves Fitness Center. Despite a promising start in the first period, thanks to the passing precision and shooting prowess of Ahmad Williams, Stuart Bennett, Jacob Culver, A.J. Shelton, Branford Rogers, and Deonte Bleach, the Travellers gained a foothold on the contest midway through the second period with a revamped offensive approach. They ultimately downed the home team, 84-71.
Final Capital Classic results will be published in a future issue of the Eagle.
