Basketball Spotlight 11U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

The 11U Division has been bananas this year. The talent is great and some intense rivalries are beginning to develop. Our Top 10 has some movement and some fresh faces. It took us a while to finish it but we gave it our best shot. These rankings are just our opinion and should be taken as such.

Basketball Spotlight 11U Top 10 Presented By AGame Team Apparel

1. We Run: After looking at their body of work and willingness to get it on every weekend we decided to reward them with the #1 slot. We really take notice to strength of schedule. They seem like a lock to make Summer Slam.

2. Riverside Hawks: We haven’t seen this bunch in a minute but word is that they finished runner up in the Elite Takeover Tournament. Hopefully we can get them in the mix for the Baby Baller Bonanza or MDC.

3. Gauchos: I’m really trying to see this team get it on. They came out blazing when the season started but have cooled off since then. Being inactive caused them to drop from the top spot.

4. Maryland Spartans: MS got five quick points with winning the championship in Atlantic City. Now the question is will they continue to travel north to qualify for Summer Slam. We will be waiting.

5. Natural Ballers: NB got an early exit from AC but still has several Summer Slam points. This squad will help make things interesting as the season comes to a close.

6. Delaware Royalty: DR have played real good ball the past couple of events. They made it to the finals of the AGame Super Shootout and the final four of the AC Showcase.

7. DC Assault: The PV crew wasn’t present in AC but with 4 points still have a chance to qualify for Summer Slam. We will be looking for them to travel back up for the MDC.

8. T Town Ballers: This squad moved up a spot after winning a Super Regional in Virginia and making it to the final four in Atlantic City. This scrappy bunch still has a chance to get to make more noise.

9. Long Island Lightning: They made their Spotlight debut and ended up in the finals in Atlantic City. If they had a stronger strength of schedule they probably would have been ranked higher.

10. New Heights: Formerly Fastbreak Basketball, this group rounds out our Top 10. They will be returning to the Spotlight for the MDC. Once there they will need at least a championship appearance to qualify for Summer Slam.
