Basketball Spotlight 13U Quarterly Report

We are going through the first part of the AAU season and it’s our job to keep you guys informed. Therefore we decided to release our quarterly reports. This report will inform on what’s going on in the Basketball Spotlight world.

Basketball Spotlight 13U Quarterly Report

Hottest Team: DC Assault

I heard about their early season accomplishments in the Potomac Valley but I saw it first hand at the Grand Finale. This squad beat teams into submission while keeping things classy. They are like a well oiled machine right now.

Surprise Team: Team Scan

This group has knocked off several teams that were in our final Top 10. They have a very athletic group and can cause trouble with their length. The are currently ranked #5 in our monthly poll. This is a team few opponents would want to see in their pool.

Stumbling Start: F.A.C.E.S.

It was a rough start for the Killer Bees as they tried to defend their Grand Finale championship. I’m quite sure they will be ready to go once they return for the Clash for the Cup. Sergeant Cole won’t have it any other way.

M.I.A. Team: Team Final

Where is Battle? Was the word around the Grand Finale. TF will make its debut at the Clash For The Cup and should be ready to go. The Reigning Team Of The Year still has a target on its back and will be aiming to get to Summer Slam. Others teams missing in action, Philly Aztecs, CT Elite, Sam Cassell All Stars and Baltimore Panthers

Surprise Player: Unique Mclean (Team Scan)

Mclean continued his hot play during the Grand Finale. His first step gives him a distinct advantage and he also has superior athleticism. The question is does he have enough to lead Scan to their first Spotlight crown?

POY Front Runner: Alani “Showtime” Moore

Moore’s unselfish play has this group zooming past opponents. He controls the tempo of the game and is capable of dominating on both ends of the floor. Can he direct this group to a Summer Slam crown?
