Baby Baller Bonanza 10U Recap: Team Nelson Takes The Banner

Team Nelson Gets It Done

AJ Hoggard scored 14 points and Mark Bradshaw added 13 markers as Team Nelson defeated Playtime Panthers 33-29 the win the Baby Baller Bonanza 10U Championship. Akrum Ahemed scored 10 points for Playtime in the loss.

Championship Game Top Performers

AJ Hoggard Guard (Team Nelson)- Few can dispute that Hoggard was the top performer in the building for this age group. During the semifinals TN had its back against the wall early versus CBC. Hoggard just took his game to another level and put them away. He repeated this type of performance against Playtime when they tried to make a late rally. He can score the rock from all three levels (perimeter, mid range and at the rim) and you can't discount his handle or court vision.

Mark Bradshaw Guard (Team Nelson)-Bradshaw shares the scoring duties with Hoggard. He loves leaking out on the fast break for easy buckets or draining a deep trey ball. In transition he specializes in getting the 3 point play the old fashioned way. The kid can score.

Christopher Allen Guard (Team Nelson)- Allen is a patient floor general that surveys the floor well. He understands how to get the rock to his scorers and knock down the open jumper when they swing it back. I like his poise.

Jordan McCoy Guard (Playtime)- When you watch McCoy play you can see potential written all over this youngster. He’s a fluid wing guard already and has a nice deep range jumper. I look forward to watching McCoy and Hoggard battle for years to come.

Akrum Ahemed Forward (Playtime)- Akrum operated inside for the NJ State Champs. He used the glass well and dribbled past the shot blockers. His inside play helped Team Nelson make their late rally.
