MIT 14U Recap: #2 Team Scan Gets Past #3 Philly Aztecs

#2 Team Scan Holds The Crown

Bryce Aiken continued his hot play as Team Scan defeated Philly Aztecs 59-44 in the MIT 14U Championship.

Top Performers

Bryce Aiken Guard (Team Scan)- Aiken was terrific in the finals. He started the game scoring with his patented floater and then when the defense stepped up he glided to the cup. He led the team in scoring and probably would have taken MVP honors if the award was based on the championship.

Isaiah Briscoe Guard (Team Scan)- Briscoe was reportedly rewarded the MVP trophy because of his stellar play throughout this event. In the finals he played the true point guard role and facilitated like a veteran. He used his size to see over the defense and make the correct passes. The POY award seems well within his reach.

Austrian Robinson Forward (Team Scan)- Robinson battled early foul trouble but still contributed late in the game. The undersized interior force uses brute strength and a quick leaping ability to snatch rebounds and get push backs. He fought hard with Horace Spencer on the blocks all game.

Horace Spencer Forward (Philly Aztecs)- I haven’t seen Spencer in a minute but I must say that he has improved. He’s demonstrating softer hands and more control when powering back up. His post moves and face up game are still developing but he’s definitely coming along.

Marcus Floyd Guard (Philly Aztecs)- "Marvelous" Marcus once again proved why he should be regarded as the best pure floor general in the region. When things got thick in the semifinals against DC Assault Floyd took matters into his own hands and steered them into the finals. In the championship the grueling day eventually caught up with this young lad and he seemed to run out of gas. But his overall play over the weekend was great.
