AGame Super Shootout 12U Recap: Playtime Earns New Threads

Playtime Cruised To The Championship

Playtime raced out to an early lead and went on to defeat Philly Triple Threat 54-35 to win the 12U Championship at the AGame Super Shootout. The Panthers had a balanced scoring attack in their victory.

Top Performers

Boubacar Kamissoko Guard (Playtime)- This kid lived on the fast break. He leaked out several times for uncontested layups. In the half court set he attacked from the wing and used twisting finishes to earn points. He also can be deadly from behind the arc. He had a huge weekend scoring the ball.

JJ Jinwright Guard (Playtime)- This was my first time checking out this kid and I like the tools he possess. He joined Boubacar in being a major problem in transition. I like the wiggle in his game and his ability to finish. I see him moving over to the point guard position.

Lydell Geffard Forward (Playtime)- The developing forward has great size and a soft touch but what really impressed me was the way he threw the outlet pass. Lydell made life very easy for his streaking teammates by hitting them with Joe Montana type long passes. On defense he blocked or altered several shots that led to easy buckets on the other end.

Mike Watkins Guard (Playtime)- Playtime has a load of scoring but Watkins controls the flow and makes sure the rock gets shared equally. Instead of using flash Watkins is a crafty guard that relies on his basketball IQ to get the job done.

Khalil Parker Guard (PTT)-Parker spent the weekend getting into the lane and scoring with the floater. During the semifinals his played helped to send Team Final home. He’s the typical tough Philly guard that makes a living off the dribble drive.

Quinton Clarke Forward (PTT)- Clarke is a hard working forward that does possess some guard skills. For this team though he played the blue collar role by blocking shots, hitting the glass and converting inside. He plays bigger than his size.
