Coach Tony Taylor stated, "This is what you play for, to bring home a championship title. The kids worked hard and they see that the hard work pays off. This win was big for the team and should increase their determination going forward. I want to thank Elite 73 for inviting us to this first annual tournament and we will see them again at the second annual shootout."

Queen City Prep Academy is a non-profit, college preparatory, boarding school program that prepares basketball players to be successful college student athletes. Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, players reside in a dormitory-like facility, take courses provided by dedicated and exceptional instructors, and conduct practices and games in a local gymnasium. Their mission is to help basketball players become NCAA eligible. Founded by Tony Taylor, we serve young men from ages 14 to adulthood from across the country. We seek to prepare these young men for adulthood by developing them socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and academically to ensure their success as college students and college athletes.The post-graduate team gains national exposure through events which attract various college basketball recruiters from across the country. Our players have the advantage of being recruited over other athletes because they gain experience playing college level basketball.
