AC Showcase 11U Preview: Baby Ballers Ready To Rock

Can We Run Take Over The #1 Spot

With other tournaments going on in the area Basketball Spotlight was still able to pull some of the top 11U teams in the region to America’s Playground. This is a feisty age group and we look forward to watching them get it on. Here’s a breakdown of who will be making the trip this weekend to Atlantic City?

AC Showcase 11U Preview

We Run: The Garden State crew continued their hot streak by winning the AGame Super Shootout. The #2 team in the region has a chance to take over the top spot with a good showing at the AC Showcase. Guard Jalen Brooks and newcomer Luther Muhammad are making strong cases for Player Of The Year.

Delaware Royalty: DR proved once they are fully stocked they are capable of getting things done. They gave WR a tough loss during pool play at AGame and might meet them again in Atlantic City. Kiyon Johnson is definitely one to watch.

T Town Ballers: I told you guys this squad was dangerous and they showed their worth this past weekend in Virginia. Now they should be ready to make a serious run in AC. Nasir Downing and Quashawn Lane provide a solid 1-2 punch.

Natural Ballers: The Clash For The Cup champs are back for another title run. Their scrappy style gives them a serious chance of winning the crown. Look for Coach Tank to have his boys ready to go.

Team NJ ABC: Jalen Gaffney is an impact player on this age level and if this squad has Anthony Hoggard playing up they will be able to hold their own. The stage is set and lights will be bright.

Maryland Spartans: They made some serious runs at the Spotlight events as a 10U squad. They were runner up finishers at the AC Showcase and the MDC. Now we will see if they have enough strength to gain the banner.

LI Lightning: Dingles crew is known to play hard the NYC way. This is their first Spotlight event of the season and we will be watching them closely. The Lightning name has legacy on the grammar school level.

NJ Shore Shots
Delaware Finest Stars
More Than That
