Basketball Spotlight Season Preview: Mid Atlantic 14U Preview

Will Team Final Finally Get To That Elusive Final Four?

The basketball season has arrived and Basketball Spotlight will kick things off with our season previews. We decided to do breakdown each AAU district by age and give you an inside look to some of the teams. Here’s look at the Mid Atlantic 14U Division. (Remember some things can change because no rosters are set.)

Team To Beat: Team Final

TF feel like they have unfinished business after placing 6th at the AAU Nationals. They have reloaded with some top talent and don’t be surprised if they mercy ruled several teams this year. A National title run might be in order for this group.

Dark Horse: Philly Aztecs

Aztecs are out to prove that their Final Four run wasn’t luck. They also have added some pieces and should be ready to go. Now they have to play the role of the hunted instead of being the hunters. The pressure is on.

Preseason Player of The Year: Lamarr Kimble

Right now he’s playing like he wants to win the award again. His swagger is serious and he’s working extremely hard on his game. We also will keep an eye on Trevaughn Wilkerson, Sam Foreman and Devin Liggeons.
