Baby Baller Bonanza Preview

Will We Run Finally Hold A Spotlight Banner?

The Baby Baller Bonanza is locked and loaded. The little guys will have their chance to shine in front of the Spotlight staff. Here’s a brief breakdown of some of the talent that will be in the building.

Baby Baller Bonanza Preview 11U

We Run: The #1 ranked team in the region will finally feel the heat of the top spot. This is a deep 11U field and now they are the hunted. We expect big things from this squad including Luther Muhammad, Jalen Brooks and Shelton Applewhite.

Riverside Hawks: Something tells me that the Hawks are here to overtake that #1 spot. They haven’t held a Spotlight banner since AC Showcase 2010, so they definitely due. Their backcourt of Cameron Wynter and Zedrek Ferrell are tough to handle.

DC Assault: Assault came close to winning the Clash, now they are back to close the deal. Kiyon Johnson now suits up with this group and also keep an eye on scoring guard Kenny Tyree.

Natural Ballers: AC Showcase ended earlier than expected for his bunch and now they are ready to show they are still a force. Jaheim Tanksley is one of the top point guards in this age division even while pulling up in age.

T Town Ballers: This first year squad has made a great impression and seems to keep improving as the season progresses. Nasir Dowling and Quashawn Lane form a dynamic duo.

PWC: This scrappy bunch returns and we are anxious to see them get down. Duke Cameron is an exciting floor general that gets this team going. They should bring wall to wall action.

NJ Shore Shots: This group competed hard in AC while competing in a tough pool. The competition in Lakewood won’t be any easier. They will need to be on their a game to make things happen.

10U Division

Playtime Panthers: The New Jersey State Champs are riding high right now. They finished second at the Clash For The Cup but are now looking to hold that Spotlight banner. They might be a tough out for anyone.

Team Nelson: Anthony Hoggard is capable of pumping in over 20 points each time he touches the court. TN is looking for a great tune up before trying to win their regional championship.

Natural Ballers: NB did some damage in the 10U division at the Clash before falling in the semifinals. Will super guard Tanksley have enough in the tank to play both age divisions?

CBC: I know this group will be coming to play hard. We expect some good guard play and hectic defense from this crew.

MABC: The Bengals love to go hard no matter the situation. They will be making their Spotlight debut. We wish them the best.

The Baby Baller Bonanza will give us the chance to check out some more of the top talent in the building. Stay tune as we bring you guys coverage of this exclusive event.
