Local youth basketball team takes national title

Redwood NJB's 6th Grade All-Net Team qualified for the national tournament in Los Angeles by winning the Silicon Valley title. That sent team members to Los Angeles, where they won the National Junior Basketball championship by defeating a strong team from L.A. in a double overtime game on March 16.
