12U AAU Nationals Update: Elite Cavaliers Win Featured Match Up

Jarron Cumberland (Elite Cavaliers)

The “Game of The Night” featured the South Carolina Ravens against the Elite Cavaliers. Jarron Cumberland had a huge game as the Elite Cavaliers defeated SC Ravens 46-45 in front of a packed house.

Top Performers

Jarron Cumberland Forward (Elite Cavaliers)- Cumberland is strictly a wing player now and he was on full display. He started by showing his range from the perimeter and ended the show with tough drives in the lane. Big time players make big plays and he showed up tonight.

Jordan Walker Guard (Elite Cavaliers)- This pesky guard did a good job playing strong with the pill and getting into the gaps of the defense. As the Cavaliers walked down the Ravens, Walker made good plays on both sides of the ball. His toughness shined through.

Leon Davis Forward (Elite Cavaliers)- Davis made some clutch buckets along the baseline and in transition. He’s too strong to contain at times on this level and has performed on this big stage before. His experience showed in the clutch.

Seven Woods Guard (SC Ravens)- The capacity crowd got a chance to one of the top prospects in Woods. His athleticism is out of this world and he proved it by leading the game in rebounds while also making a big time block. Once this kid gets stronger and adds a pull up jumper to his game he will leave many others in his tracks to stardom.

Keenan Black Forward (SC Ravens)- Black showed some flashes of dominance but he had to work too hard to get good shots. The EC defense and his team’s lack of movement caused the youngster to have to go one on five. It’s hard for anyone to dominant under these circumstances.

Matt Cone Guard (SC Ravens)- Cone came up big for the Ravens. He drained a deep trey at the end of the half and kept the momentum going throughout the game. He stepped up when it counted even though his team took the loss.
