ANDRE: So, tell our readers what exactly makes the NorthStars ballers so special?
WESLEY: What makes this team so special is that we are out-sized in every position, but we work and train harder than others and we have a will to beat all odds.
ANDRE: What do you love the most about your team?

ANDRE: Wesley, what is the biggest, most underlying lesson you’ve learned this year as a team?

Building on this success, we will look back at the battles and how we won the war, continue to train and practice with an intense purpose to be great on and off the court.
ANDRE: Looking ahead, why is the sky’s the limit for your bunch in their quest to repeat as champs?
