Basketball Spotlight 13U Top 10 (Presented By AGame Team Apparel)
1. Team Final: Team Final came, saw and conquered the Grand Finale. They held off a few challenges and took home the hardware. TF seems to be gearing up for a National Title run and with the addition of Manny Taylor it could be possible. We will see at the Clash For The Cup.
2. The City: They loss a couple of pieces but this versatile bunch still made it to the finals of the Grand Finale. They are currently nipping at Team Final heels and will try to get over the top at the Clash For The Cup. This is a squad no one wants to play.
3. KYDA: This new squad is the front runner for New Team Of The Year. They made a strong run to the semifinals and had Team Final on the ropes. I love their guard and the toughness they showed throughout the tourney. I’m sure we will hear from them soon.
4. Team Takeover: After losing their top gun (Bryant Crawford) to injury following the first game they still managed to make to the Final Four of the Grand Finale. They are a rock solid squad and will always be in the thick of things.
5. Gauchos: This bunch has a load of talent and looked good at the Grand Finale before running into Team Takeover. As you know they are a dangerous crew capable of making a run at any tourney. Coach Science will have his troops ready for battle.
6. F.A.C.E.S.: The Boys in Black loss a slugfest with KYDA at the Grand Finale. The loss of Manny Taylor will be a huge void but Coach Cole will make adjustments as usual. We look forward to seeing them at the Clash For The Cup.
7. NJ Got Game: These boys made a splash during pool play before facing off with TF. They have a talented bunch but will need to gel before making a huge impact. They will have another crack at it during the Clash For The Cup.
8. Philly Aztecs: I like this bunch and don’t be surprised if they move up in the rankings. They have one of the top prospects in the country (Horace Spencer) and a few tough guards. Don’t ever sleep on them.
9. Delaware Team Select: This bunch created a little buzz at the Grand Finale. They have some legit guards and a few other blossoming pieces. We will definitely keep an eye on this bunch.
10. Linden Ballers: This rugged bunch gives any opponents a huge headache. They are always ready to play and well coached. This could be the year they make a huge dent.
