Basketball Spotlight MDC 10U Preview: Baby Ballers Gear Up For Big Weekend

Can Team Nelson Add The MDC To Their Banner Collection?

The 10U Division of the Basketball Spotlight MDC is packed with some serious talent. This division should have wall to wall grudge matches and some top new players emerging. Here’s a look at some of the top teams in attendance.

Basketball Spotlight MDC 10U Preview

Team Nelson: The Baby Baller Bonanza Champs recently won the Mid Atlantic crown and seem to be a favorite to capture the banner at Hoop Group Headquarters on Sunday. They have some serious talent including POY candidate AJ Hoggard.

CJ Hawks: The Hawks finished highly ranked as a 9U program and are looking to stay afloat when they reach AAU Nationals this year. The MDC will be a great challenge for this bunch and we want to see how they hold down their own turf.

Natural Ballers: NB also has a chance of winning it all. Jahiem Tanksley can dribble through a key hole and has range well past the 3 point line. Will NB break out their classic dance in Neptune? We shall see Sunday.

Team NJ ABC: Gaffney’s bunch has a lot to prove at the MDC. His son Jaylen is one of the most talented floor generals around. He understands how to score while also making his teammates better.

Team Rebels: They caused some raucous at the Baby Baller Bonanza and also has a few good players including spectacular guard Justin Money. They are tough enough to crash this party and take home the banner.

Gauchos: This is our first look at this bunch. They come from a storied program but haven’t been in the Spotlight fire thus far this season. I’m interesting in seeing how they respond to the bright lights.

CBC: They were another pleasant surprise at the Baby Baller Bonanza. Guard DJ Jackson can stroke it from anywhere. That Hartford toughness stands out with this bunch.

Other Teams To Watch For: T Town Ballers, Parker Running Rebels and Linden Ballers
