Basketball Spotlight 12U Top 10 Presented By AGame Team Apparel

The 12U Division has been very exciting this season. This group might truly go down to the wire at Summer Slam. Here’s a look at our Regional Top 10. Please remember that these rankings are just our opinion and should be taken as such.

Basketball Spotlight 12U Top 10 Presented By AGame Team Apparel

1. Team IZOD: TI took home the NJ State crown. They are in position to take home everything at the end of July. They might have to run into their vicious rivals by the name of CBC a few more times.

2. CBC: CBC fell short to the Juice All Stars in their state finals. This powerful group will be making the trip to the MDC and is a lock for Summer Slam. Could that be the first time they raise the banner?

3. Juice All Stars: Juice has positioned themselves among the elite by having a solid season. Now as we get closer to the Summer Slam they just need a good showing at the MDC to make it to Hoop Group Headquarters in July.

4. DC Assault: DC Assault is knocking on the door of making it to Summer Slam. They are currently in 4th place for points and would close the deal with a decent showing at the MDC.

5. Maryland Panthers: A PV regional championship has this group right back in the thick of things. We won’t see them during the MDC so they won’t have a chance of raising the ultimate banner at Summer Slam.

6. Playtime Panthers: The Panthers pushed Team IZOD to the limit at the NJ 12U AAU Championship. I had them as my surprise team but I guess the cat is out the bag. Hopefully they will be ready for the heat called the MDC.

7. CT Elite: CT Elite has been right there but unable to leap over the broom to victory. They have an outside shot of being that 4th team invited to Summer Slam. They need a repeat performance of last season’s MDC run.

8. Team Nelson: This Mid Atlantic group has shown some progress and probably will be the favorite to win their regional AAU crown.

9. 6th Man Warriors: The PV group will be making the trip up to the MDC. They have excellent guard play and have a chance to knock off anyone.

10. Team Final: TF took some lumps in AC but they might have a chance to rebound before the season is over.
