Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2016 Top Wing Guards

Tyus "Kid Mamba" Battle Has Loads Of Potential

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase took place today and it was a huge hit. We have loads of material to cover and we look forward to profiling the participants. Secondly, we look at the top wing guards entering 7th Grade.

Super Showcase Top Wing Guards (Class 2016)

Usual Suspects

Tyus Battle (Edison, NJ)- Battle turned it up late against North Carolina. He started attacking the basket and finishing off plays. Right now strength is the only thing keeping him taking his game to new heights. When that arrives it’s going to really be a problem for opponents.

Jamar Watson (Brandywine, MD)- “Boogie” was very aggressive and it paid dividends. The lefty got to the rim at will and knocked down the outside shot when the defense sagged. When Watson got hot he turned it on in a big way. Good Job Boogie!

Jamir Moultrie (Washington, DC)- Moutrie used this showcase to introduce himself to the Northeast. He went head to head against “Showtime” Moore for a classic duel. He had the 3 ball falling and an equipped driving game. He put in serious work.

Jamal Allen (Boston, MA)- His coach Dennis Mayes is tough on guards but called Allen outstanding. He’s relentless when attacking from the wings but also has a mean ratchet. The prolific scorer knows how to get buckets.

Jabri McCall (Philadelphia, PA)- Things are coming together for Jabri. He’s another player that should improve once he gets stronger. He made some good moves towards the basket and used his length to finish. He’s oozing with potential.

Fresh Faces

Wayne White (Huntington, NY)- This was my first look at White and I was impressed. He has good body control and knows how to finish with either hand. I like his size and thinks he could become a go to man for a club in the future. Wayne has a good basketball demeanor; he seems to never get rattled.

Stanley Davis (Chester, PA)- This was Davis first time playing with this age group but the youngster did more than hold his own. He attacked in transition and showed some cleaver ball handling. Now everyone can see why he’s a Player Of The Year Finalist for 11U.

Stay tune as more wing guards from this class will receive individual profiles.
