Basketball Spotlight MDC Preview: 11 And Under

The Kentucky State Champs Are Headed To The MDC!

The 11 and Under Division at the MDC is smoking. This 12 team field features some of the top teams on the East Coast. Here’s a look inside one of our best brackets.

MDC 11U Preview

Hoop Dreams (KY)- The Kentucky State Champs are on their way here and feel they have a shot to bring the title back to the Bluegrass State. The backcourt of Jordan Perry and Nicholas Reed is tremendous then when you throw in 6’1 giant Malik Dow they become a problem. They will be tested early with a pool game against F.A.C.E.S.. Wow!

Team Battle: Is there a better 11 and Under Team around? We will find out as TB will be gunning to defend their MDC crown. The trio of Tyus Battle, Jamir Harris and Darius Gillan are enough to keep any opposing coach up at night tossing and turning.

Gauchos: I haven’t seen the Choz since the Clash For The Cup but word is that they are thriving since Brandon Randolph took over the point guard duties. Shamorie Ponds can light up anyone’s scoreboard at any time.

DC Assault: I love watching this squad especially the backcourt of Anthony Mr. Cowan and Reggie Gardner. Team Battle knocked them off during the semifinals in AC so look for some revenge in the eyes of PV’s finest.

New Heights: Rakym Felder is one of the hottest players in the region right now. The lefty is a bona fide scorer and his range is when he walks in the gym. They are hungry for their first Basketball Spotlight crown and it might happen this weekend.

F.A.C.E.S: Speed Kills and this group are as fast as they come. They apply tremendous pressure and move the rock up the floor in a hurry. They have been very close to bringing the trophy this year and this weekend might be their time to shine.

Other Teams To Watch: KBR Raptors, Long Island Lightning, SJ Juice All Stars, Newark Titans, Team Underrated and CJ Jammers.
