AGame Super Shootout 11U Recap: Late Rally Lifts We Run

#2 We Run Wins Again

We Run made a late run to defeat Delaware Royalty 39-33 to win the 11U Championship of the AGame Super Shootout. The Garden State squad had a balanced scoring attack in their victory.

Top Performers

Luther Muhammad Forward (We Run)- When things looked bleak for We Run Luther went to work on both ends of the floor. His coast to coast drive helped to change the momentum of the game. On defense he played the passing lanes and intercepted a couple of passes when they pressed the rock.

Shelton Applewhite Guard (We Run)- The big guard was able to convert a few buckets after receiving the rock in transition. I like Applewhite because he’s big enough to get a clean shot whenever he wants.

Nas Amos Guard (We Run)- The pint size guard squeezed through the defense in an effort to run his team’s offense. Amos dribbles the rock so low it’s very difficult for any defender to get a hand on it.

Kenny Jones Guard (We Run)- Jones is another heady guard that I like with this group. He can play either guard spot but will probably end up playing the point. His ball handling skills and ability to create should take him far.

Kiyon Johnson Guard (Delaware Royalty)- Johnson did damage in this contest. His versatility allows him to dominate the game at times. He was quick enough to get past smaller guards and big enough to score over shot blockers.

Jamal Whittlesey Forward (Delaware Royalty)- Jamal was very dominant for most of the game. But when We Run started to apply their pressure defense his guards couldn’t get him the pill.
