Baby Baller Bonanza Day 2 Recap: 11U Top Performers

Antony Saccenti (Cecil Slam)

The Baby Baller Bonanza featured some top players from around the region. Here’s a look at some of the 11U players that got busy on Day 2.

11U Top Performers Day 2

Antony Saccenti Guard (Cecil Slam)- Anthony is a coach’s son and you can see it when the point guard performs. The lefty directs traffic while finding teammates and penetrating the defense. He guided his squad to the final four while looking like a miniature Zach Rosen out there.

Nigel Haughton Guard (Cecil Slam)- Haughton was Anthony’s backcourt mate. He’s also a lefty with supreme quickness and ball handling skills. He goes end to end in a blur while converting in transition.

Nate Roberts Forward (Cecil Slam)
- Roberts is a shot blocking and rebounding machine. In the pool play win against eventual champ Riverside, Nate finished the game with double figures in boards and rejections. His name will ring bells in Maryland in years to come.

Tyler Holley Guard (Cecil Slam)- The slashing scorer might also be a good one down the road. He has a scorer’s mentality with the moves to back it up. We look forward to watching him again.

Zegary Scott III Guard (PWC)- The defensive specialist showed some offense in their double overtime lost to We Run. Scott is skilled enough to attack from different spots and isn’t afraid of the big stage.

Ta’wan Grier Forward (PWC)- Grier battled like a warrior all weekend. He has a nose for the rock and used his width to bang down low for rebounds. Grier is also light on his feet for a stocky forward. He's a small Charles Barkley.

Duke Cameron Guard (PWC)- Cameron didn’t score as much as other outings but the point guard used his speed to make things happen. He’s a defensive stopper and excels in the open floor.

Lucas Flanzig Guard (Riverside)- The strong combo guard muscled his way to the hole and killed the opposition with a mid range floater or stop and pop. He also is rugged enough to help out inside on the glass.
