NJ 14U AAU State Recap: Top Performers Part 1

Juwan Dolbrice (Linden Ballers)

The 14U NJ AAU State Tournament held their final four today and Basketball Spotlight was in the building. Here’s a look at some of the top performers that got busy.

Top Performers Part 1

Juwan Dolbrice Guard (Linden Ballers)- Dolbrice showed an attacking style similar to Brandon Knight. He cut through the defense and pulled up for short jumpers and dished the rock to cutting teammates. His strong build allows him to finish off big plays in traffic.

James Corbett Guard (Linden Ballers)- Corbett played well alongside Dolbrice. He sliced through the lane and scored over shot blockers. On defense he played the passing lanes very well while snatching a few interceptions. He’s also willing to help out on the glass.

Kyle Phipps Guard (Linden Ballers)- Phipps was a beast on the defensive end. He pressured the Pirate guards into submission. On offense his drive, draw and dish game was on full display. He gets a kick out of making teammates better.

Joshua Carter Forward (Linden Ballers)- Carter finished well in transition and displayed a good face up game. He has touch from the free throw area extended. He hits the glass hard and can guard all positions on the floor.

Keyshawn Alexander Guard (NJ Pirates)- Alexander was a bright spot for the Pirates. The compact guard gets to the tin at will and has the natural knack to score the pill. He led all scorers with 24 points.

Jaquan Robertson Forward (NJ Pirates)- Robertson is an athletic forward that plays with a lot of energy. He battled hard inside by blocking shots and eating rebounds. He will have to develop his ball handling skills to have a good impact on the high school level.
