Clash For The Cup 11U Preview

The Gauchos Are Aiming For Another Title!

The Clash For The Cup 11U division is stuffed with upcoming teams. Top to bottom anyone can defeat anyone at any giving time. Here’s a breakdown of the top teams that will be in the building.

Clash For The Cup 11U Preview

Gauchos: The Grand Finale Champs will be trying to win the second leg of the Road To Summer Slam. Coach Wee will be roaming the sidelines and having his crew ready to go. Keep an eye on rising guard Markquis Nowell.

We Run: One of the hottest teams in the region will be in Lakewood. Jalen Brooks has been outstanding this season and should be able to help this group make a deep run. This is a quality squad.

Fastbreak Basketball: Judah McIntyre runs the show for this crew and that have the talent to have a good showing. This kid has to be one of the best guards around. Also watch out for shooter Daniel Klosk.

Bayshore Bulldogs: Rob Higgins is a crafty guard and should be able to keep the crowd entertained. He sees the floor well and will have to get the ball to the shooters. I’m anxious to see how they fair.

Natural Ballers: NB are hungry for a Spotlight crown. Jordan Taylor and Jaheim Tanksley should provide the offense for this group. Taylor had a great showing at the Grand Finale and we expect another one.

Team Final: TF is led by floor general Elkhana Hildago and he is known for putting on a show. This squad will be looking to make a dent into the 11U division. This is a tough field but I think they should be okay.

T Town Ballers: Nasir Dowling helps take this team to another level. He plays all five positions and should be able to help them knock off a few top teams. Keep an eye out for quick guard Javade Mackson.

Delaware Royalty: Fahmir Ali doesn’t fear anyone and he will be ready to lead DR to some wins. He is one of the quickest guards in the region and DR will need him to have a good tourney. I also heard that their big boy will be in the building.

Howell: This team has been making a lot of noise on the travel scene. This is their first Spotlight experience and hopefully they can handle the heavy competition. We will be watching.

DC Assault: I haven’t seen this group yet but I know Assault only has top ball players in their staple. It will be interesting to see how this PV squad can handle the Spotlight.
