Written by John Hamre   

The #1 Wheelchair Basketball Team in the United States hosted their Inaugural Wheelchair Basketball Tournament at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City NY on Saturday March 18 and Sunday March 19, 2018.  With 3 Division 1 Teams, NY Rollin Knicks, Medstar NRH Punishers, Toronoto Rapters and the top Division 2 Team in the US, the Nassau Kings, the adaptive athletes competed at the highest level that wheelchair basketball can offer.

The NY Knicks came out on top with the Medstar NRH Punishers coming in second and the Toronto Raptors taking third.  The Nassau Kings and NY Rollin Knicks played a competitive exhibition game since they are in two different divisions.

Congratulations on a great Tournament and the Wheelchair Sports Federation would like to thank our dedicated volunteers, James and Jeremy Tantsits, Joanna Nieh, Zak Ivkovic and the CUNY staff, All-American Deli & Bagel Company and a special thanks to Kevin Grant who did a great job as Tournament Director.  We all look forward to seeing everyone next year and if you'd like to see the NY Rollin Knicks and the Dallas Wheelchair Mavericks play for the National Wheelchair Basketball Championship in 2017 - Click Here - https://www.nwba.org/
