AC Showcase 11U Top Performers

Jalen Brooks (We Run)

The AC Showcase 11U Division was very impressive. We gave you some recaps from the championship and now here are some top performers from the rest of the event.

11U Top Performers

Jalen Brooks Guard (We Run)- Brooks had it going on early during the tournament. He posted 19 markers against Delaware Finest Stars and finished the event posting 13 points an outing. He’s moving closer to POY honors.

Jalen Gaffney Guard (NJABC)- Gaffney had an excellent showing he averaged about 16 points including 4 trey performance against the NJ Shore Shots in pool play. This youngster is playing up and getting the job done.

Jamal Whittlesey Forward (Delaware Royalty)- According to my scout Jamal played big in the middle. He averaged double figures including 15 points in their Final Four loss to Maryland Spartans. His return has boosted DR’s play and team ranking.

Shelton Applewhite Guard (We Run)- Applewhite recorded some decent stats this weekend. He averaged 11 points a game and my scout likes his size playing on the wing. This kid might have a huge upside.

Nasir Dowling Forward ( T Town Ballers)- T Town has been hot lately and Dowling is one of the main reasons. The versatile forward lead is team to the Final Four and scored 19 points against Delaware Royalty.

Kiyon Johnson Guard (Delaware Royalty)- You can throw Johnson’s name in the POY talk. The big guard can do it all. At the AC Showcase he lived at the free throw line. He finished the tourney pumping in 10 points a game and helping his team reach the semifinals.
