With plenty of young talent the future looks promising for the Lady Magic basketball team.

At the 2014 Native American Basketball Invitational the Lady Magic had two teams entered in the girls' division with the younger group – the NN Lady Magic – winning the Silver Division at Phoenix College on July 4.

"We're a small organization, something like a club team," Lady Magic coach Al Tsedah said. "We started the team in 1993 and through the years I have worked with many talented girls."
The NN Lady Magic finished pool play with 1-2 record before recording five straight wins. They capped the four-day tournament with a 54-36 win over the Northern Thunder in the championship game.
