WeThe Best 2026 has started off the 2018 travel season with a bang. Coach Patrick McGee & his boys traveled to St. Louis to compete in the ThreatHoops MLK Holiday Classic this past weekend. They went to test their mettle in a very competitive tourney that included some of the nations best in their class.

WTB not only competed but pretty much dominated throughout the tournament. WTB went 3-0 in pool play as they defeated the Wildwood Warriors (59-8), Let It Fly 2027 (50-8) and USA (63-5). They beat Matthews Dickey Knights 35-17 in the semifinal. WTB met the Riverfront Rebels in the championship round. The Rebels (ranked #8 in the nation per Coast2Coast Preps) defeated Let It Fly 69-4 in their semifinal match-up, which made the championship game a must see event. We The Best topped the Riverfront Rebels in a battle 38-30. 

WTB has been a force locally in Louisville but is now starting to gain some national recognition. This team has the pieces to be a major factor on the national AAU circuit. They got their first taste of AAU Nationals last summer and they are looking to make a run for the hardware in the summer of 2018.
