Basketball Spotlight 12U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

The Basketball Spotlight Top 10 Presented by AGame Apparel 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 12U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

1. NY Rising Stars: They were absent from the Clash For The Cup but just won the IS8 Championship. Things should get very interesting with this bunch the rest of the way. They trail Team IZOD are tied with Juice All Stars for Summer Slam points.

2. CBC: The Connecticut boys came down and made a trip to the finals before running into that Cali buzz saw. They gathered 4 quick points and now are back in the Summer Slam race. They will be looking to earn more than some casino chips in Atlantic City.

3. Team IZOD: The reigning Team Of The Year has yet to hold a banner. But their play hasn’t gone unnoticed since they are the Summer Slam point leader with 7 markers. Their arrival should me AC even more interesting.

4. Maryland Panthers: They missed the recent party at the Clash but are anxious to get to Atlantic City. They want to show they are still among the elite teams in the country.

5. DC Assault: A Final Four finish in their Spotlight debut has them in the Top 5. They loved the bump so much they jumped onto the 3rd leg in Atlantic City. Another run to the Final Four or more will have them deep in the Summer Slam race.

6. Juice All Stars: A blown van tire caused them team to fall in the quarterfinals. But being active is paying off as they are tied for second in Summer Slam points. I won’t be surprised if they make it to Burlington in August.

7. CT Elite: The effort was good but they fell to a couple of tough teams at the Clash. Now they are looking to Atlantic City for some revenge and to earn some points.

8. Team Final: This team showed a little moxie but needs to gain more experience in big games. Atlantic City will give them a chance to make things right.

9. Playtime Panthers: The Green and Black don’t back down to anyone. They had a tough draw facing Cali in the quarterfinals at the Clash. Hopefully the experience will help them throughout the season.

10. Team Nelson: TN was absent from the Clash and have been hit with the injury bug recently. But they should be ready for the spring events.
