Basketball Spotlight MDC Preview: 14 And Under

Peacemakers Are The Hottest Team In The Region!

The 14 and Under Division at the MDC is stacked with heavy hitters. The team that survives this bracket could really call themselves champions. Here’s a look at who will be making the trip down to Lakewood.

MDC 14U Preview

Peacemakers: “The Bullies” are now one of the hunted. They won the Elite 80 Expo, AC Showcase and the Mid Atlantic Regionals. They are fully stocked and word is big Semaj Reed will be suiting up so the rest of the field better look out.

Team Nelson: The Chester boys have a chip on their shoulders. After losing in the finals of the AC Showcase they got bumped in the playoffs of the Mid Atlantic Regionals. They should be on a war path once they hit Lakewood.

Long Island Lightning: This group of Lightning will be looking to bring home their first Basketball Spotlight trophy. The have the talent to get it done especially with Super Forward Jason Boswell and guard John Severe. Will Lightning strike in Lakewood?

DC Assault: The boys from Potomac Valley have joined the party. I saw them last year at the Playaz tourney and if they still have the same squad, Look Out! Melo Trumbell can flat out shoot the rock. Welcome to the Spotlight DC Assault.

NY Panthers: The Panthers made it to finals last year and are back to take it all the way. Look for Master Coleman, Dalique Mingo and Maynard Grant to step up when things get rough. Coach Kat seems to always find a win so let’s see if he could pull another rabbit out of his hat.

KBR Fliers: The Fliers fell in the NJ State Semifinals and are back for some wreck. Fuquan McDonald heads the frontline and they also have a solid group of guards. They should make a solid run at the MDC.

Higher Ground Warriors: I like what I saw from HG in the MA Regionals. Please make sure you take a look at big time guard Amar Stukes. He has some very smooth moves and good basketball instincts.

NJ Shore Shots: Mr. Diary Jordan Forehand will be in the building and trying to help his team bring home the gold. They have a tough road to travel but anything can happen at the MDC.

Other Teams To Look Out For: Cenn Penn Ballers, Hoop Dreamz NJ, PPY Elite and Linden Ballers
