AGame Super Shootout 12U Recap: Baltimore Panthers Hold It Down

Baltimore Panthers Cruise!

In the 12U championship action Baltimore Panthers ran past Flash Basketball 46-28. Dajuan Honeyblue led the winners with 14 points and Rahiem Burnett finished with 12 markers for Flash in the loss.

Top Performers

Daveyon Barnes Forward (Baltimore Panthers)- Barnes definitely helps BP in a big way. The big fella is very mobile and active inside. He’s a constant shot blocker and hits the glass very hard. Like most post players on this level he’s needs to work on footwork and moves in the paint. This kid has the frame to shoot up a lot of inches in years to come. You will be hearing this name for a while on the circuit.

Dajuan Honeyblue Guard (Baltimore Panthers)- Honeyblue did the scoring from the perimeter. His methods were draining the outside shot and beating the defense down the floor in transition. He picks his spots well and attacks when giving the opportunity.

Khalil Richards Guard (Baltimore Panthers)- I like this kids size and his ball handling on this level. Flash really didn’t have anyone to stay in his way once he attacked. He was either too quick for the forwards or too big for the guards.

Rahiem Burnett Guard (Flash Basketball)- I wanted see if Burnett still had his swagger against a better team and he showed me that his handle was still intact. He kept defenders on their heels with double and triple crossovers. It’s very tough for any defender to stay in front of this youngster.
