Manchester Magic took the 2012 Under-18 National Cup after rolling past Reading Rockets Academy 77-57 in the final on Sunday at the Amaechi Centre, Manchester.

The lone bright spot for Reading was Durrell Charles, who went 9/14 from the field for his 24 points, adding 3 steals and 3 assists, as rising young star Luke Nelson (1995 born) struggled to get going, finishing with 13 points on 5/20 shooting.
