Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2015 Top Point Guards

Marcus Floyd Made An Instant Impact At The Super Showcase

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase concluded on Saturday. We gave you some top performers from the rising 7th Grade class, now it’s time to look into the Class of 2015. Finally, here’s a look at the top point guards that made the trip to Burlington, NJ.

Super Showcase Top Point Guards (Class 2015)

Marcus Floyd (Wilmington, DE)- Floyd only played a game and a half but put on a show. He was a blur with the pill as he danced around defenders and beat shot blockers to the tin. He’s coming off a terrific summer after leading the Philly Aztecs to the AAU 13U Final Four.

Bryce Aiken (Randolph, NJ)- I was impressed watching Aiken actually run the point. He held off hawking defenders with smartness and swift ball handling. Bryce stayed out of trouble in terms of getting trapped and was able to set up teammates including Kimble for easy buckets. He showed good poise on Saturday.

Malik Ellison (Voorhees, NJ)- Ellison had a great showing quarterbacking the Hornets team. He knows how to keep the floor balanced and pull up the correct time for a jumper. One of the hardest jobs as a guard is to move from a scoring guard to a true floor general. But it seems Malik has made the transition.

Kevin Alexis (Trenton, NJ)- Alexis has an impressive frame and has been known on the circuit to cut up a few defenses. His outside shot is slowly improving and he’s beginning to pick his spots better. He is definitely worth the price of admissions.

Shaun Belbey (Brick, NJ)- Belbey showed he can hang with the physical style. He attacked the defense and either dished to teammates or knocked down his own shot. I love the confidence he showed playing in this environment.

Tyheem Harmon (Philadelphia, PA)- Harmon is was a late entry but brought his Philly style to this event. The stocky punishing guard got into the lane with power and a crafty handle. Philly is known for pumping out tough guards and Harmon seems next.

Notes: Special Shout Out To Otis Livingston. The special point guard was in the building for this event but unable to participate because of an injured wrist. We will save a spot for you next year.
