AC Showcase 13U Orange Championship Recap: Team Felton Cashes In

Team Felton Didn't Waste Their Gas Money

Harry Giles scored 24 points and Jayce Wolfe added 12 markers as Team Felton defeated Force One 50-39 to win the AC Showcase Orange Division Championship. Kyle Depollar scored 12 points for Force One in the loss.

Top Performers

Harry Giles Forward (Team Felton)- Giles made the most of his Spotlight debut by erupting for 18 of his 24 points in the second half. He ran the floor like a deer and converted while also displaying solid post moves. He has become more comfortable handling the rock and making decisions. Finally, I like how he demanded the rock on the post during the finals. It shows he's definitely maturing and understanding how good he could be. Standing 6’5 his potential as a wing player is scary.

Jayce Wolfe Guard (Team Felton)- Wolfe was a very good pick up for this crew. He drove the rock down the teeth of the defense before exploding to the rim. His addition gives point guard Mike Buckland some time to play off the ball. This kid is a just a flat out scorer.

Mike Buckland Guard (Team Felton)- Buckland had a solid weekend against some of the top teams in the region. He’s a guard with good size and rarely turns the rock over. He also has some wiggle in his game which helps him get past more athletic defenders. He does have an awkward release on his jump shot but was successful with it at times.

Joe Hampton Forward (Force One)- Hampton put together one of the best weekends of the season. He dominated some of the top teams in the region. Hampton was a beast on the post but also tickled the twine from behind the arc. He averaged over 20 points a contest and posted a double double each game. He played like the best player in the region in this event.

Kyle Depollar Guard (Force One)- When Hampton got double teamed Kyle burned the defense from the perimeter. He’s a spot up shooter with a good basketball IQ and knows how to play the passing lanes.

Jeff Dowtin Guard (Force One)- Jeff is now playing with Force One and logging minutes at the point guard spot. His jump shot wasn’t dropping as much as in the past but I like the fact that he has decided to transform into a point guard. This will be his normal position on the high school level.

AJ Banks Guard (Force One)- I love this kid. He’s an athletic slasher that finishes well in traffic and has good size his position. Banks assisted Hampton on the glass and also got on the break very quickly. I will be keeping a close eye on this kid.
