New Heights NYC: The Kings of NY heads down with a lot of swagger. They added a few new pieces before the season ended but eveything still goes thru the "Bed Stuy Bully" Rakym Felder. Don't be surprised if they smash several squads.

King Street Kings: Speaking of smashing, this squad has been hammering teams all year long. Their two MIT crowns have many believing they will the National title. They have the guard and the bigs to get it done.

Team Battle: You might not recognize these guys. Only 3 players remain from the Final Four team of a year ago. Luckily they are 3 of the top players in the country. The pieces they added might give them a better look than last year. They have a date with Dc Assault in pool play.

NJ Got Game: This squad has been very close to winning a few titles. They have one of the top players in the region in NyRhique Smith. These boys are capable of knocking off anybody. Expect them to make a huge run.

MABC: The Bengals have a serious 1-2 punch in "Hail" Ceasar Adim and Jamal Allen. Their styles fits well with this field and they might make a huge run. They are Basketball Spotlight tested.

F.A.C.E.S.: The Killer Bees will need to be swarming once they hit the Boo Williams Center. Their up and down style should have the place buzzing. They have a great matchup against Cincinnati Lakers in pool play.

KBR Raptors: The Raptors will need to bring their rugged style to advance out of pool play. They have played in some serious tournaments throughout the year so they should be ready.

Long Island Lightning: Lightning have some good pieces and might have the toughness to surprise a few teams. Cameron Winston is an aggressive forward that can hande the pill. Don't count them out.
