Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Top Performers Part 2

Elliot Cadeau

The Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Division featured some of the top talent in the region. Here’s Part 2 of our Top Performers. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

Elliot Cadeau (Team Izod)- Elliot is becoming a true floor general. Cadeau has a gritty toughness about him that we really like. He has improved his jump shot a lot; now has he the ability to attack the rim or pull up from mid-range. Cadeau is also a very tough defender that seems to enjoy that side of the ball. He has become more athletic and is finishing through contact at the rim. Elliot is becoming another tough New Jersey guard.

Sebastian Robinson

The Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Division featured some of the top talent in the region. Here’s Part 1 of our Top Performers. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Top Performers Part 1 

Sebastian Robinson Guard (Team Final)-Robinson is the silent assassin on Team Final. Robinson usually does not show a lot of emotions on the court but he always plays at a high level.. He can score from all three levels on court and showed it in the championship game. Robinson was able to score 20 pts while shooting perfect from the floor and the foul line. Sebastian showed why he’s one of the top guards in the class of 2023. His ability to attack the rim and finish is one of the best we have seen; his improved jump shot allows him to knockdown three pointers at a high percentage.
