Basketball Spotlight 14U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

The Basketball Spotlight Top 10 Presented by AGame Apparell is back. I know we have our Summer Slam point system but we still have to chart who we think are the Top 10 Teams of each age group. This is just our opinion and should be taken as such.

Basketball Spotlight 14U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

1. Team Final: TF continued their regional dominance in this age bracket. They mercy ruled all their opponents before reaching the finals. When they are on they are extremely difficult to defeat.

2. Philly Aztec: They lost a heart breaker in the semifinals to F.A.C.E.S. but talent wise we feel they are the second best team in the region. They will have a chance to redeem themselves very soon.

3. Team Scan/KYDA NJ: They made a Final Four run at the GF before losing to eventual champs Team Final. This well disciplined bunch knows how to grind out victories.

4. F.A.C.E.S.: This group reunited and shot up the rankings after making to the finals of the GF. I thought it would take this group a little longer to gel but apparently General Cole had the troops ready.

5. Team Scan/KYDA NY: They had a tough schedule playing the top 2 teams in the region. They are still getting their chemistry together so we will be watching them closely.

6. The City: They took some tough losses in the pool but when they are fully loaded they are a totally different squad. Right now we will give them the benefit of the doubt.

7. Philly Triple Threat: PTT made easy work of the Blue Division while mercy ruling every opponent in this division. Now we will see if they are really ready for the big powers.

8. Future Players: FP defeated tough teams in the pool before being derailed by F.A.C.E.S.. I like some of their talent but thing they can’t afford to play to the competition level.

9. Albany Dream Team: ADT returns to the Top 10 after showing some real toughness in the GF. Juwan Gooding when he is focused can lead any squad to victory.

10. Team Rebels: TR was absent from this event but have the talent to make some noise at the Clash. If they want to get to Summer Slam they have to get things going quickly.
