Basketball Spotlight 12U Top 10 Presented By AGame Apparel

Things got real interesting in Atlantic City for the 12U Division. We are looking at a tight race all the way to Summer Slam. Here’s a look at our Regional Top 10. Please remember that these rankings are just our opinion and should be taken as such.

Basketball Spotlight 12U Top 10

1. Team IZOD: Sports University took over our top spot by defeating CBC in the finals of the AC Showcase. Right now they have a chance to secure a top seed in Summer Slam with an impressive finish at the MDC.

2. CBC: CBC came close to being the #1 squad but fell short to Team IZOD in the finals. They still positioned themselves well for Summer Slam by collecting 4 more points. This war might go all the way to Neptune on July 31st.

3. DC Assault: A final four ride in AC moved this squad moved up to #3. They have 6 points and with a good MDC showing they will get a free trip to Summer Slam.

4. Juice All Stars: Give Juice 3 more points after making to the semifinals in AC. They look like a secure bet to make to Summer Slam but a good run at the MDC would guarantee their spot.

5. Maryland Panthers: MP ran into their rivals DC Assault in the quarterfinals of AC. They still managed to get 2 points and have accumulated 5 markers towards qualifying for Summer Slam. They would need a serious run at the MDC to get this done.

6. CT Elite: They had a wire to wire battle with Maryland Panthers and made it to the quarterfinals of the AC Showcase. They currently have 4 points but still have an outside chance of making Summer Slam.

7. Team Nelson: TN survived a tough pool before losing in the quarterfinals. They finally seem to be healthy and it showed in their play. They are slowly getting their swag back.

8. Playtime Panthers: The Green and Black won the AGame Super Shootout but didn’t take the trip down to Atlantic City. The NJ State tournament and possibly the MDC might be stops for this group.

9. Team Final: TF advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Team IZOD. They currently have 4 points in their quest to attend Summer Slam.

10. 6th Man Warriors: This squad showed a lot of grit at the AC Showcase. They had a tough pool but still managed to make their presence felt.
