Inside The Grand Finale 12U: Who's Really The Best?

Will The Rising Stars Emerge As The Best 12U Team?

The action was heated quickly at the Grand Finale in Lakewood, NJ. There were some serious bang out games and a new champion was unveiled. This 12U division is full of surprises.

Serious Parity

The 12U Division seems to be wide open because our last four tournaments for this age group have produced four different champions. Team Battle (Clash For The Cup), F.A.C.E.S. (AC Showcase), Maryland Panthers (MDC) and NY Rising Stars (Grand Finale). You also have to throw in Juice All Stars and CT Elite has potential powers.

Juice All Stars Return

After a year hiatus Juice All Stars returned to the Basketball Spotlight events and put in some work. They made a final four march and gave the crowd some exciting play. Good job coach Jabba and crew.
