Basketball Spotlight Season Preview: New England 14U Preview

Expressions Made An Early Statement!

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 New England’s 14U Preview. It is a little thin but we only can go with what we know and saw. I think we will be able to give a more in depth look very soon. (Remember some things can change because no rosters are set.)

Team To Beat: Expressions

I slept on this group (Ty, I got your lobster!). But after watching them in the fire I believe they have some pieces to get things done. They should be the favorite to win the Massachusetts title. But I still need to see MABC and BABC. Hopefully, I will soon.

Dark Horse: CBC

They would be my pick to win Connecticut. They are stacking their squad with the best talent available and if when Chir Maker arrives that should put them over the top. Watch your back for these guys Expressions.

Preseason Player Of The Year Juwan Gooding (Expressions)

There might be a few better prospects because of their upside but right now Gooding impacts the game too much to be overlooked. He’s capable of pumping in 30 any time he touches the wood. He’s definitely worth the price of admission.

NE Preseason 1st Team
Chir Maker (CBC)
Chris Baldwin (Expressions)
Blair Howard (CBC)
Aaron Mclean (Expressions)
Juwan Gooding (Expressions)

2nd Team
Derrick Boyd (CBC)
Josh Malone (CBC)
Donovan Love (Expressions)
Tarik Smith (Expressions)

Keep in mind that we should have more info on this age group after we see more talent from this area.
