The Greenville University Men's basketball team is headed to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time in program history after a 126-119 win over Blackburn in the SLIAC championship game. NextLEVEL 24 very own Johari Dix lead the charge with a game of high 26 points, adding eight assists, and was named the SLIAC Tournament MVP.
Dix played on the NextLEVEL 24 Elite AAU Team and currently trains with Coach Kent when he is home on breaks and in the summer. There is without question that Johari has put the work in to place himself in a position to be successful. “Johari is one of the hardest working young men that I know and I am not surprised that he is excelling in the game of basketball,” says Coach Kent.
Look for Johari as he leads his team to their first NCAA Tournament Appearance.

Next Level 24 has truly been a tremendous aid throughout the process of searching for a school that was best for me. I had known Coach Jason Kent and his wife for quite some time, and I knew how experienced they were with the game. Hence, I reached out to the Kent family for their assistance with my preparation for the next level. They spent many early days and late nights with me in the gym in order to work with me on my game. During this preparation, my primary goal was to pursue a Chemical Engineering degree while playing the sport that I love. However, Coach Kent wanted nothing less than the best for me. He didn’t want me with just any basketball program. His goal was to get me onto a Division I roster, and he made every effort to do so. These efforts included reaching out to as many coaches as he could, and getting me into the right showcase events. Eventually, I made the decision to attend the University of Dayton with intent and hope of becoming a walk-on for the men’s basketball team. Fortunately, Coach Kent knew someone on staff at the university. Coach Kent was able to connect me with him, and he made sure I had all of the necessary information in regards to when and where try-outs would be held, and what I would needed to participate. In the end, I accomplished my goal. I am now a member of the Men’s Basketball Team at the University of Dayton, and I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. The Kent Family and Next Level Basketball has truly been a blessing to my family and I. They have always encouraged me to work hard, trust the process, and stay focused on my goals at hand. To the Kent family and the members of Next Level, thank you all for the love and support you all have shown, and thank you for pushing me to work harder and harder every day. I pray that you all continue to change the lives of the youth of the Chicagoland area by making their dreams come true.
