Basketball Spotlight MDC 13U Preview: There's Nowhere To Hide

Can "The Killer Bees" Snatch Their First Gold Ball?

The 13U division of the MDC should be full of surprises. We will definite have a new champion and it might be one of our first time visitors. Here’s a look at the 7th Graders that are looking to take home the Gold Ball.

Basketball Spotlight 13U Preview

F.A.C.E.S.: The Killer Bees recently won the NJ State crown and have to be one of the favorites to win this event. They have added size this year and it has paid off. The MDC will just be a tune up for this group for Summer Slam.

Gauchos: The Choz were very close in the past as you can see with their Summer Slam point total. This is a versatile bunch with some explosive pieces. When the chips fall they might make it to the championship round.

Team Rebels: The Rodney Dangerfield of this field. They want a little respect and are willing to earn it on the floor. They had a good showing at the AC Showcase and DC Assault Classic. A championship run could sneak them into Summer Slam.

Playaz Basketball Club: The King Of NY champs have made some recent noise on the circuit. They will be making their Spotlight debuts and will be looking to cause a thump.

MABC: No one can be hungrier than “Hail” Caesar and crew. They are looking to repeat their final four MDC run of a year ago. It’s time for the Bengals to take a bite out of the competition.

CT Elite: This group showed mass improvement and has an outside shot of making Summer Slam. Their guard play is outstanding and their inside play is improving. Maybe it’s the new red and black uniforms.

Fairfax Stars: The boys from Northern, Virginia will like to have a better showing than they did at the Grand Finale. Throughout the season they have made deep runs in a few big time tournaments.

Wilson Blue Devils: The NC crew made the trip up north for that good bump. Well they will get it early in pool play as they take on the scrappy Ironmen and the Choz. Welcome to the Spotlight.

Baltimore Panthers: This physical bunch return to the Spotlight after almost a year’s absence. They have the Under Armor tag on them so they have to represent. They might get busy in this wide open field.

M.A.E. Ironmen: If I’m walking down a dark alley I would love to have this group rolling with me. They are as tough as they come and are willing to take on anybody anywhere.

Other Teams To Watch Out For: Philly Freedom, CT Elite (Blue), Montgomery County, NJ Shore Shots, CJ Future Stars, Expressions, Boston Spartans, Kingdom Elite
