Tucson Summer Pro League Wraps Up In Style

Posted By on Mon, Jul 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM

The 10th season of UA basketball great Corey Williams' Tucson Summer Pro League finished up Sunday with a championship-game upset led by a not-so-surprising title game MVP.

The Casino del Sol-sponsored squad, which finished sixth in the 10-team league's regular season, beat No. 1 seed Clausen Moore in the semifinals then downed No. 2 Nimbus 115-112 in an electrifying championship at St. Gregory College Prep.

Casino del Sol was led by Donte Williams, who earned his seventh TSPL championship in 10 seasons and earned finals MVP honors.

TSPL scoring leader Larry Boyd, who averaged 20.5 points per game, was named league MVP, while Jason Timpf of Nimbus won the league's 3-point shooting contest and Michael Purdie took home the Slam Dunk Title and a $500 prize.
