Basketball Spotlight 11U Midseason Report

We are currently at the mid-point of the Basketball Spotlight season and a lot of interesting things have transpired. Some new players and teams have emerged. Here’s our mid season 11U report.

Basketball Spotlight 11U Midseason Report

Hottest Team: We Run

They went from a surprised team to the hottest 11U name in the region. Their MIT and AGame crowns stand out and we do expect them to pick up a Spotlight banner before the season is done.

Surprise Team: T Town Ballers

This group has turned things around quickly. They won the Super Regional in Virginia and made it to the final four of the AC Showcase. Now let’s see how they react when teams are gunning from them.

MIA Team: NYC Gauchos

We have an APB out on the Choz. They started the season on fire and we expected them to run the table. We will be definitely looking for this group on the circuit. They have some serious talent.

Player Of The Year Front Runner Jalen Brooks (We Run)

This kid jump starts the engine for this group. He can explode for buckets or run the show like a true floor general. His steady play has this squad in position to win it all.

Surprise Player: Kiyon Johnson (Delaware Royalty)

Delaware Royalty is back and you can blame Johnson for that. The big guard has the ability to take over a game at anytime. He also loves dishing the rock to teammates and hitting the glass. He has an all around game.
