Basketball Spotlight 14U 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 14U report.

Basketball Spotlight 14U Midseason Report

Hottest Team: Team Scan

Yes a final four appearance in AC came after they won the MIT. This group’s name is ringing bells throughout the country right now. Let’s see if they have enough in the tank to bring home the Summer Slam crown on July 31st.

Surprise Team: Expressions

We brought them out of their comfort zone of New England and they still responded by making it to the finals of AC. I must say they have the pieces to have an impressive run at the MDC and might sneak into Summer Slam.


We have been waiting for this group to enter the Spotlight all season. This bunch always travels with deep and brings a lot of excitement. Hopefully we will get them for the MDC.

Player Of The Year Frontrunner Isaiah Briscoe (Team Scan, Playaz)

Few can argue about this choice because of the season this kid has put together. He tormented the defense in just about every event he has played in this season. He’s having one of the best campaigns in Basketball Spotlight history.

Surprise Player Bryce Aiken (Team Scan)

Aiken has taken his game to another level this year. His point guard skills have improved and he’s showing that his style of play can translate to the high school level. He’s one of the smartest players around.
