Salt Lake City – March 6, 2014: The Wheelin’ Jazz returned from Las Vegas and our final tournament of the season this past weekend. The team has performed remarkably well this season and earned a top 5 ranking in the NWBA. We’re proud of our success.
We also had three of our players, Rod Neimann, Brian Allen, and Jeff Griffin honored to be selected to the NWBA All Star Team. The All Star game was played in conjunction with the NBA All Star Weekend. Our West team excelled and won a close game against the East squad. Wheelin’ Jazz standout, Jeff Griffin was named the MVP making him a 3 time recipient of this award. Read about the All Star Game here.
Unfortunately, our season has now come to a close. We are unable to attend the National Tournament due to funding reasons. The tournament is in Louisville KY and would be too expensive for our limited funds.
We want to thank our families, fans, sponsors, and supporters for all the cheers, applause, donations, and well wishes for helping us make this season great.

With your help, we can only go higher.
