AGame Super Shootout 13U Recap:Team Final Reigns Again!

Team Final Shines At AGame Super Shootout

Lamar Kimble and Trevaughn Wilkerson scored 14 apiece as Team Final defeated The City 53-33 to win the AGame Super Shootout 13U Championship. Eric Paschall finished with 10 points for The City in the loss.

Top Performers

Lamar Kimble Guard (Team Final)- Kimble has put together a terrific season and yesterday was nothing different. He punished The City guards with physical drives and cleaver finishes. His pull up jumper is sweet and his body control looked tremendous. He’s currently a front runner for Player Of The Year.

Trevaughn Wilkerson Forward (Team Final)- Wilkerson is just too much to handle on this level. He got deep post position and showed good touch especially on his jump hook. I also like the way he shows discipline on defense in terms of staying out of foul trouble.

Vaughn Covington Guard (Team Final)- Covington defense stood out yesterday. He plucked The City ball handlers about five times and raced in for uncontested layups. His confidence is soaring and he looks like he could be a serious prospect.

Eric Paschall Forward (The City)- Eric showed good in the finals. I like how he shoots off the dribble and presents himself as a serious match up problem. His best days of basketball are definitely ahead of him.

Otis Livingston Guard (NJ Got Game)- In the quarterfinals Livingston was the engine for NJGG. Not only did he run the show but he also made them pay from the perimeter nailing several treys. His play gave NJGG the breathing room to pull out the victory.

Isaiah Still Forward (NJ Got Game)- Still was very aggressive on the offensive end especially in transition. He pushed the rock himself and made some nice passes. He still needs a little work in this area but the kid has serious potential.

Juwan Gooding Guard (VCB)- Gooding started out hot against NJGG but got into a little foul trouble which took him out of the game. This kid has the ability to be a prolific scorer if he keeps his emotions intact.

Anthony Carr Guard (Philly Triple Threat)- Carr lead his team into the semifinals by being a great floor general. Anytime the squad got rattled he pumped the brakes and restarted the engine. This kid is just a natural point guard.

Reggie Parker Guard (Future Players)- Parker is a hard nose point guard that scores in the lane by using the floater. During his trips to the cup Parker is known to carry a few defenders on his back. This kid is relentless at times.

Andrew Hill Guard (Future Players)- Hill has extremely long arms and using them to get buckets on the break and steal the rock in the passing lane. He’s a top notch athlete and plays with great determination.

Kellan Grady Guard (VCB)- The 6th Grader ran a decent point this weekend for VCB. He didn’t turn the rock over too much and held his composure against some heavy competition.

Christian Vital Guard (Hollis Biddies)- Vital had a good weekend from the floor. The kid with the sweet stroke also used his ball handling to get the action going. He looked good against two of the top teams in the region in Team Final and The City.

Rajien Griffin Forward (Hollis Biddies)- Griffin is also one to watch with this squad. The physical wing guard gets the job done from the perimeter and in traffic. He has good change of direction and body control. He too looked impressive against the top notch comp.
