Mr. Memorial Day

Darius Gillon Forward (Team Battle)- Gillon capped off a great tournament by dominating DC Assault on the glass and with put backs. His presence and energy on both ends of the floor gave his squad a serious boost. He’s really beginning to understand how dominant he can be during the games. He has to be the most improved player in this region and what’s even scarier is that he still has a ways to go in developing.

Spotlight Players

Tyus Battle Guard (Team Battle)- Battle was spectacular once again. The talented guard gave the crowd a taste of his exploits. During the semifinals he went for 21 against KBR Raptors and finished off the tourney with a great all around performance in the finals. This kid is something serious!

Anthony Cowan Guard (DC Assault)- Mr. Cowan didn’t go down without a fight. In the second half he caught a hot streak from behind the arc nailing 3 consecutive treys to try and keep the game close. The entire tourney the mega point guard gave the Northeast a taste of his unique floor general skills.

Jamar Watson Guard (DC Assault)- Watson has a high arching trey ball that looks good when it’s released. He gets to the cup with a combination of power and dribbling skills. Boogie Watson is definitely a scoring guard. Keep an eye on him.
