FAIRMONT -

The AAU basketball circuit is picking up lots of steam around the country. Now a team from Marion County is doing some big things along that circuit.

The West Virginia Reign is a team made up of 7th Graders around the West Fairmont area. The squad recently qualified for the AAU Nationals down in Memphis, Tennessee.

The national tournament will begin early next week at Woodridge High School in Memphis.

Head Coach Pepper Reasnover said his team lacks some size, but they've got all the heart in the world.

"We're going to go up there and see a lot competition than what we've been playing around here. But it's all just experience. So we're very excited about that and to get a nice little vacation is also another good thing," Reasnover said.

The team will be holding a fundraiser on Saturday, June 15th at the Derby Days Video Racing in the Westchester Village.

All donations will go towards the team's travels to Memphis.
