The faces may be different but the results are the same. The Aces earned their third straight Eastern Pennsylvania Tipoff tournament championship with a convincing 58-45 victory against Parkland Saturday night.

The Aces were keyed by tournament MVP Carl Johnson who provided lockdown defense throughout the tourney, including a stellar job on Parkland sniper Adam Block who scored just six points after connecting for 27 in the opening game.

Greg Robbins, who earned all tournament honors, led all scorers with 26 points, including two treys and ten at the fee throw line. Eric Barefield chipped in 14 and Johnson had 13 to pace the Aces attack. Now 2-0, the Aces return home to open Central League play against Springfield next Friday night at Aces Nation Stadium.
