Cali Style 14U Champs

Top Performers

Tyler Dorsey Guard (Cali Style)- Dorsey made his Spotlight debut and didn’t disappoint. He gave us all facets of his game including and smooth jumper, decent handle and ability to compete at a high level. This kid has a tremendous motor and willingness to hit the boards. His aggressiveness showed in his point total and amount of trips to the charity stripe. If he grows 2 to 3 more inches he can stay at his natural wing position if not he will have to handle the rock more like a point guard.

Marcus Lovett Guard (Cali Style)- Lovett let the East Coast know that another Brandon Jennings might be on the horizon. This kid was a total blur with the rock. He battled some of the toughest guards in the country and got to the hole whenever he wanted. His extremely long arms allow him to finish over shot blockers and play lock down defense. Mark my words; he will be a big time player.

Steve Zimmerman Forward (Cali Style)- He stands 6’9 and I love his face up game and touch around the basket. He doesn’t play a physical but still will put up numbers similar to Rik Smits. His length caused opponents serious problems all weekend. He’s another sure bet D1 prospect.

Robbie Feinberg Guard (Cali Style)- Feinberg has decent size for his position and ridiculous range. He will let it go deep in the half court set or in transition. He understands his role on the squad and plays it well.

Bryce Aiken Guard (Cali Style)- Aiken turned in an excellent tournament. His play during the semifinals against Team Takeover (16 points and good decisions) propelled them into the finals. He’s one of the smartest players around and continues to have a great season.

Austrian Robinson Forward (Team Scan)- Robinson posted another good showing this weekend. He’s very solid on the blocks including a baby hook in the lane. He’s addicted to rebounding and dominating along the baseline. Austrian has the luxury of playing with some great guards.
