Top Performers

Christian Ford Forward (F.A.C.E.S.)- Ford took home the MVP hardware after banging on the blocks all weekend. His motor was high and has improved his post moves. On defense he clogged the lane and made things very difficult.

RJ Cole Guard (F.A.C.E.S.)- Cole started the finals scoring his teams first 8 points. It's amazing how he still was able to compete on a high level after playing for two age groups this weekend. The kid has a lot of passion.

Ray Montilous Forward (F.A.C.E.S.)- Ray looked good playing the wing. It's his natural position as he explodes past smaller guards. His body control is good for a player this age. He made big plays.

Leon Daniels Forward (F.A.C.E.S.)- Daniels played big all weekend. During the semifinals against NJ Got Game hit did a good job defensively and finished with 10 markers. He has shown great improvement.

Daquan Bracey Guard (Baltimore Panthers)- Bracey led the scoring attack for the Panthers. In transition he's a load to stop because of his handle and strength. When he has the rock his team always has a chance to come back.

Khalil Richard Guard (Baltimore Panthers)- Richard hit a big trey as the Panthers tried to make a late run. He's very light on his feet to be a massive guard. His ball handling can keep defenders off balance.
