AC Showcase 13U Top Performers

Jabri McCall (Team Rebels)

The 13U Division had some new faces and teams emerge in Atlantic City. When the smoke cleared we had a champion from North Carolina and some great memories. Check out some of top performers from this age group.

AC Showcase Top Performers 13U

Jabri McCall Guard (Team Rebels)- McCall loves AC. Last year he put on a show playing with Flash Basketball but this time around he did even better. During their showdown against Team Final McCall had defenders on skates as he Euro-stepped to the tin. This kid finishes strong with either hand and knows how to maneuver his shot around shot blockers.

Khalir Johnson Forward (Team Rebels)- The big fella has arrived. Johnson was too big in the post for TF to deal with. He got deep post position but really tormented them on the offensive glass. Once he grabs the rock and powers back up there’s nothing you can do on this level.

Vaughn Covington Guard (Team Rebels)- The quarterback of this vibrant bunch led this group into the final four. His attacking style stands out while you can’t deny his willingness to get teammates involved. He brought the crowd to its feet when he attempted a dunk over a Team Felton defender.

Trevon Duval Guard (Team Rebels)- The youngster playing up seemed to blend in with the competition. He was another dribble driving guard that gave TF problems. He has played under the bright lights for years so he’s accustomed to this type of stage.

Tremont Waters Guard (CT Elite)- Waters faced box and one defenses and was still able to wow the crowd with some slick dribbling and long shots. This kid is very dangerous as soon as he passes half court. One of the signs of a special player is the ability to get a clean look and create space. Tremont can do both.

Brandon Hurst Forward (CT Elite)- Waters commanded so much attention that Hurst was able to do his thing. The slashing wing player led the team in scoring during the tournament including a 18 point performance in a loss to Team Felton.

Raymond Montilous Forward (F.A.C.E.S.)- Ray’s rugged style got him to the charity stripe a lot. He has learned to get his shot off against bigger defenders and does it well. His quickness helps him produce heavily on this level.

Ceasar Adim Forward (MABC)- His team had a tough weekend but Adim posted his usual numbers. Defenses are doubling down on Adim while sagging off the guards. Now he has to go get the pill and attack from the perimeter including launching a few jumpers.

Jamal Allen Guard (MABC)- Allen helped out his sidekick the best he could. He posted some big numbers and finished with a 15 point a game average. The lefty is a prototype wing guard that scores with the best of them.

Dyaire Holt Guard (Albany Dream Team)- The aggressive guard still managed to score at will. He finished with 24 points a game average. He doesn’t care about who lines up in front of him he just goes in. He’s just a big time scorer.

Jaekwon Carlyle Guard (Peacemakers)- Clarlyle represented Philly by lightning up the competition from 3 point range. He nailed 4 treys against Team Scan and hit Cen. Penn Ballers up for 21 points.
